At the end, through the shrewd use of religious fervor, Ibn Saud had an army of unprecedented valor and strength of purpose. In —30 a part of that army turned against him and was dispersed only after a period of uncertainty, but stability had been achieved when on 9 May a contract obtained by the Standard Oil Company of California granted rights to explore for and develop the resources of oil in the eastern half of the nation.
The young leader
More often than not the exchequer was empty but the government functioned. The final section of the book discusses Ibn Saud himself: his aspect, his qualities of mind, mannerisms, and interests. He was a man of his time with a greater-than-average sex drive. He had 48 legitimate sons, 22 declared wives, and later in life, several concubines.
Some marriages were made only to firm up alliances, but all were consummated. Convert currency.

May 10, Tawfiq elBastaki rated it it was ok. I didn't like the way the book was written. Too confusing.
There are so many characters in the book with similar names too many Abdul Aziz, Saud, Abdulla This is not really the writer's fault but he could have added a couple of family trees of the main families note that I read the electronic version of the book. What I also found difficult with this book is that it is chronologically confusing: sometimes the book jumps to the past, goes i I didn't like the way the book was written. What I also found difficult with this book is that it is chronologically confusing: sometimes the book jumps to the past, goes in the future, and then goes back to the past Almost half of the book explains the personal traits of Ibn Saud rather than focusing on history.
Probably one of the dullest books I've ever read. It's too bad because I imagine Ibn Saud was an immensely fascinating man. The book is dry, too filled with facts and too little anecdotal information about Ibn Saud himself.
