Max Rodenbeck has a new review piece in the New York Review of Books, offering a nuanced view at recent Saudi-bashing. I'm usually very much for Saudi-bashing, but it's worth separating some of the more tenuous accusations against the Saudis from those that really matter.
The Arabist is published and edited by Issandr El Amrani, a writer and analyst based in Cairo, with contributions by friends.
