Book forum: "America's Kingdom"

The Qahwa Sada Book Forum debuted yesterday with a discussion of America's Kingdom: Mythmaking on the Saudi Oil Frontier by Robert Vitalis.

The author has subjected his book to the "page 69 test," which you can read about soon here on the blog.

Meanwhile, look in on this discussion of America's Kingdom. It opens with initial framing remarks by Bob Vitalis, followed by commentary by two Gulf experts: F. Gregory Gause III (University of Vermont) and Toby Jones (formerly of the International Crisis Group, and currently at Swarthmore College).
