Review

"This solidly researched monograph is an excellent account of how Saudi Arabia came into existence as a state...This is a densely written, rewarding book for scholars and those with a keen interest in the early years of Saudi Arabia."--Foreign Affairs

"Kostiner's book serves well as a reference, and as a source of many interesting questions about the relationship between ideology and state building, between peripheral interests and centralized institutions, and between indigenous interests and British colonial policies."--The Historian

"This concise and extemely well-researched study provides one of the most lucid historical accounts of the evolution of modern Saudi Arabia to appear in recent years...It is must reading for anyone truly interested in understanding the antecedents of present-day Saudi Arabia."--Middle East Journal

"Balances well-written narrative with careful analysis....His explanations of Ibn Saud's conquest of Husayn's Hijaz, incorporation of the province of Asir a few years later, and his victory over the Yemeni are clear and concise. Equally compelling is the author's treatment of Saudi relations with neighboring Arab states and with the British."--Choice

"Kostiner's manuscript is a significant contribution to the field of historical scholarship on Saudi Arabia. I know of no other book on this period of Saudi Arabia that is as detailed as Kostiner's. His scholarship is exemplary. This includes research, analysis, interpretation of an extraordinarily broad range of materials, balance in presentation and good critical judgments where appropriate. It is also lucidly written. It will be a real conrtibution to scholarship on Saudi Arabia."--Hermann Frederick Eilts, Boston University

"A critical assessment of the 'personality cult' approach and an evaluation of its underlying assumptions are outstnding projects for a huge generation of researchers and scholars of the country....recommended not only to historians and Middle Eastern specialists, but also to those interested in general questions of methodology and interdisciplinary work. Kostiner has never been to Saudi Arabia..., yet he has produced a vivid account of the country and its politics, a proof of rich and historical imagination."--Middle Eastern Studies
