Publisher Comments:

With Princess Sultana's Circle, the extraordinary story of Princess Sultana continues. The forced marriage of Sultana's niece to a cruel and depraved older man, and Sultana's discovery of the harem of sex slaves kept by a royal cousin, makes this brave royal princess more determined than ever to fight the oppression of women in Saudi Arabia. Princess Sultana's cause is given an extra sense of urgency against the background of increased dissent against the Al Sa'uds, and the looming spectre of Islamic fundamentalism. But an extended family camping trip in the desert brings the luxury-loving Sultana and relatives closer to their nomadic roots, and gives her the strength to carry on the fight for women's rights in all Muslim countries.This book paints a horrifying reality for women of the desert kingdom. It is a haunting look at the danger of Saudi male dominance and the desperate lives of the women they rule.

Nance, September 20, 2014 (view all comments by Nance)
Princess Sultana's Circle is the third book in the non-fiction series about a Saudi princess, by Jean Sasson. Most recently, the author wrote a fourth book in the series, titled Princess, More Tears to Cry. All of the books in the series are so interesting and inspirational. Princess Sultana's Circle concentrates mainly on the princess, her daughters and husband and her sisters and extended family. In the newest book, the princess talks more about many of the women that she has helped through her tireless effort to bring about change and freedom to the women of her country. Since Jean Sasson first wrote Princess twenty-two years ago there has been some change for the better, but change and even the smallest freedoms come slowly; as we learn in Princess More Tears to Cry. There is a fascinating new interview with the author on the Gulf News site talking all about her new book, by the way!

An astonishing inside view of everyday life of the royal family in Saudi Arabia. The wealth, business dealings and plight of women are portrayed in vivid and amazing detail. Recommended to all who want to know more about the Muslim world.
