SANDSTORMS; Days and Nights in Arabia

New York: Norton, 1990. Third printing. Paperback. 5 12 x 8, 281 pgs. In this provocative and incisive memoir, the author reveals the Middle East only as a true insider can. Stationed as a journalist in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, for most of his seven years in the region, he explodes the romantic images of Arabia, but replaces them with the even more intriguing reality of fanatic Muslims, overwhelmingly rich and powerful royal families, and the vast gulf in understanding between Arabs and westerners. Very Good. Item #30946
