John Bradley was interviewed on the Jim Bohannon Show about his book Saudi Arabia Exposed: Inside a Kingdom in Crisis, published by Palgrave Macmillan. John Bradley talked about life in Saudi Arabia and the Saudi royal family’s hold on power there. Mr. Bradley said that while the majority of citizens in Saudi Arabia worry about growing unemployment, a deteriorating education system, and a lack of fundamental freedom, the Saudi royal family does little to address these issues. This disparity, he argued, has caused Saudi Arabia to become increasingly unstable. Mr. Bradley also talked about the reaction to the U.S. invasion of Iraq in Saudi Arabia and recounts a picnic he attended in Saudi Arabia with members of Osama bin Laden’s family. He responded to audience telephone calls, faxes, and electronic mail. close
