Saudi Arabia

No particular agenda today other than promoting general background knowledge.

Interesting and detailed country study of Saudi Arabia "prepared by the Federal Research Division of the Library of Congress under the Country Studies/Area Handbook Program sponsored by the Department of the Army," but attempting to be scholarly and objective; more detailed, and less US-strategic-interest-oriented, than the CIA World Factbook. This country report only goes up to 1992, but still interesting. I've only glanced at most of it, but I found the section on religion (including a good overview history of Islam) particularly worthwhile.
