We are delighted to announce Dr. Ron Choong's latest book - Kingdom of Saudi Arabia: Behind the Veil.
"What is the planet’s most secretive kingdom like?
The Arabian Peninsula is the home of civilizations older than Rome and was once the shadow capital of Babylonia’s last king some 2500 years ago. The Bible tells us that in their moments of escape and renewal, Moses of the Hebrew Bible and Saint Paul of the New Testament called Arabia home.
In the Pre-Islamic Age, archaeological research has identified several important trading kingdoms at the crossroads of Africa, Asia and Europe. The modern Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was established in 1932 and continues to be ruled by a single family whose founder expanded an emirate in Riyadh and conquered two other emirates to form a kingdom of desert tribes. Finally, in 2019, just before Covid hit, the KSA issued its first tourist visas.
Today, it is possible to visit this fabled land to see for yourself the diversity of land and peoples, to separate fact from fiction, and to discover the prehistoric sites where mysterious standing stones, rock-carvings and inscriptions dot this ancient subcontinent.
The KSA is a new country in an ancient land that is changing rapidly as it embraces the 21st century fueled by huge economic resources. My journey across this crossroads of antiquity answered many questions about the connections between the Mesopotamian, Egyptian, Persian, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman Empires." - Ron Choong
