The World Affairs Councils of America’s Cover to Cover webinar on Tuesday, September 20, at 2:00-3:00 PM ET, features David Ottaway, a Middle East expert and author, in conversation about Saudi Arabia and its young, controversial leader Mohammed bin Salman.
In the aftermath of President Biden’s visit to Saudi Arabia in July and one year since the publication of Mohammed bin Salman: The Icarus of Saudi Arabia?, we must ask ourselves: Who is MBS and how has he shaped Saudi-U.S. relations? With brilliant analysis and insights, veteran Washington Post foreign correspondent and author David Ottaway takes readers into the world of modern Saudi Arabia and the man who is poised to rule the country for decades to come.
