      Saudi Arabia is problematic from a variety of perspectives, including its treatment of women, suppression of dissent, and its war on Yemen. Regarding women, Saudi Arabia subjects women to the oppressive male guardianship system, in which all Saudi women need permission from a male to travel, study, obtain a passport, and marry. The man who ended the cinema ban, Muhammad bin Salman, the de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia, has a bit of T’Challa in him. The young crown prince, often known as MBS, .

      However, the author considers that such a radical upheaval is unlikely and that anyone in charge in Saudi Arabia would still have to sell its oil on the global market to pay for food and other imported products needed to maintain popular support. This book will be of particular interest to U.S. diplomats, foreign-policy experts and scholars.   I'd recommend two books by British author Robert Lacey: The Kingdom: Arabia & The House of Sa'ud Inside the Kingdom: Kings, Clerics, Modernists, Terrorists, and the Struggle for Saudi Arabia Thomas Lippman's book is also good, though more polit.

      THE REASON THE US IS LIMITED IN CUTTING OIL PRODUCTION THE WAY SAUDI ARABIA CAN: Saudi Arabia seems to be telling President Trump that the U.S., now the world’s biggest oil producer, can’t.   The hate-filled materials distributed by "American mosques and spread, sponsored or otherwise generated by Saudi Arabia demonstrates the ongoing indoctrination of Muslims in the United States in the hostility and belligerence of Saudi Arabia's hard-line Wahhabi sect of Islam" Shea noted.
