Description

‘Blood and Oil’ is a work of investigative journalism about the precipitous ascent of one of the world’s most decisive and dangerous new leaders, and the simultaneous fraying Western-Saudi relations. Caught in his net are well-known U.S. bankers, Hollywood figures, and politicians, all eager to help a charming Crown Prince with extraordinary powers, hunger for lucre, a tight relationship with President Trump’s son in law Jared Kushner, and an apparent willingness to break anything -and anyone – that gets in the way of his vision. If his bid fails, Saudi Arabia has the potential to become an unstable failed state and magnet for Islamic extremists. And if his bid to transform his country succeeds, even in part, it will have consequences around the world.
