All about Saudi Arabia?
While the history and culture of Saudi Arabia are undoubtedly extremely important - especially for Islam - its politics and social issues are somewhat glossed over on this site.
For example, the Today in Saudi "frequently asked questions" give a view on human rights that is at total variance with what you will find on the Amnesty website.
There are helpful materials here, including the opportunity to hook up with a desert expedition, but a few alternative sources could help those uneasy about the source.
