A compendium of writings penned by the legendary Afghan writer,

the Sirdar Ikbal Ali Shah, this book is unlike any other to have

described the Kingdom of His Majesty King Abdulaziz Ibn Saud.

The great difference between Ali Shah and other writers of the time, was

that he was personally acquainted with King Abdulaziz. The two men first

met in 1926, a handful of years before the formal establishment of

Saudi Arabia, and remained friends until the death of King Abdulaziz.

Gleaned from decades as a traveller, a pilgrim, and as a savant, Ali Shah's

work consider Saudi Arabia and its monarch from a multitude of angles -

reflecting on the changing shape of the Arabian peninsula, and on its

leadership under His Majesty King Abdulaziz Ibn Saud.

A cornucopia of heritage, folklore, fascinating cultural material, ancient and

contemporary history, In The Land of King Abdulaziz is a treasure trove of a book

- one that seeks to explain the most remarkable facets of Abdulaziz's

Kingdom to readers in both West and East.
