HASH(0x9a2e2e40) out of 5 stars Ibn Saud 1920-1940s 21 Nov. 2011
By William Garrison Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
"Ibn Saud: The Desert Warrior and His Legacy" by Michael Darlow and Barbara Bray (2010). A review by Richard Phelps (Quilliam Foundation, London) in the Fall 2011 "Middle East Quarterly" expressed his enjoyment with this book: "Though not an academic work, this sympathetic volume's ... value lies less in its analysis than in its lively narrative. ...Much of this biography centers on Ibn Saud's earlier years rather than on the kingdom that was later to bear his family's name.... Anecdotes add welcome color to this portrayal: Ibn Saud's attempts to bring hundreds of sheep aboard a U.S. battleship so as to entertain his American guests with traditional Arab hospitality on one occasion ....The focus is overwhelmingly on Ibn Sa'ud, the man and his life, rather than wider issues relating to Wahhabism or contemporary Arabian society. ... [This book] will encourage students and interested readers to explore Saudi and Middle Eastern history further."
