Overview

Saudi Arabia and Britain enjoyed a special relationship in the early 1940s, but by the last year of King Ibn Saud's reign (1953) these two states' relations had deteriorated into severe conflict. The chapters of this book attempt to answer a variety of questions that affected the main course of Saudi-British relations, such as Saudi-US relations, the security concept, the Saudi-Hashemite problem and the frontier conflict. Based primarily on archival documents, this original and comprehensive study is the first book to cover Saudi-British relations between 1939 and 1953 and to explore the matter in the depth it deserves. In his investigations, Dr. Shafi Aldamer implements a framework that narrows the usual gap between academic theories and the reality of politicians' and diplomats' practices in the field of international politics. The study is a vital contribution to understanding Saudi Arabia and Britain's relations during an important era of change. It will also help the reader comprehend and appreciate their contemporary relations.
