Saudi Arabia remains a closed society with its own interpretation of Islamic Law, an insistence on royal privilege, and an uneven record on human rights. The Saudi File represents a unique documentary insight into this hidden kingdom. Anders Jerichow has assembled a comprehensive collection of primary-source documents on the elements of state power in Saudi Arabia. These range from laws, royal decrees, extracts from speeches to opposition comment, international reports and other previously unpublished confidential material. The Saudi File will provide scholars with a comprehensive resource on the modern Saudi state and the issues facing those in power. It will also provoke debate on the wider issues of state power, personal freedom, and human rights throughout the region.
