Modernizing Saudi Arabia by Samar H. Fatany
The book offers an interesting look at initiatives to modernize Saudi Arabia. It includes past efforts and those that are currently in the works, as well as new ideas that are still being discussed and haven't yet been tried. By looking at past, present, and future reforms, the book comes across as comprehensive and thorough. There is a strong focus on the roles of women, young people, and social media in driving change, and this, combined with references to recent " Arab Spring " protests and other contemporary events, gives the book a very current and timely feeling.
