In the wake of the 1979 Iranian revolution, relations between states in the Middle East were reconfigured and reassessed overnight.

Amongst the most-affected was the relationship between Iran and Saudi Arabia. The existence of a new regime in Tehran led to increasingly vitriolic confrontations between these two states, often manifesting themselves in the conflicts across the region, such as those in Lebanon and Iraq, and more recently in Bahrain and Syria. In order to shed light upon this rivalry, Simon Mabon examines the different identity groups within Saudi Arabia and Iran (made up of various religions, ethnicities and tribal groupings), proposing that internal insecurity has an enormous impact on the wider ideological and geopolitical competition between the two. With analysis of this heated and often uneasy relationship and its impact on the wider Middle East, this book is vital for those researching international relations and diplomacy in the region.

    Exceptionally poor in terms of quality of writing. There is at the most a couple of ideas that are being reworded reframed and repeated ad nauseum throughout the book. The chapters are disjointed and don’t serve to develop any ideas and just repeat essentially the same things over and over. Exceptionally dull writing and a complete waste of time as very little insights into Iran Saudi rivalry is revealed.

    O livro faz um paralelo pormenorizado sobre a influência e antagonismo das duas maiores potências do Oriente Médio e como usam a religião como instrumento político para influenciar os povos da região. Gostei.

    When I start reading this book for the first couple of days/chapters I thought I made the wrong decision by buying it. However, it turns out to be a good book overall, but unfortunately it did not add much to me. This book is definitely for someone who knows zero about Saudi Arabia and Iran culture/ politics, very useful if you want to build up your knowledge of both countries. Yet it might not be a staunch book to read for someone who knows the politics of the ME.

    Very disappointing. There was nothing in this book that I had not already read in any of the good newspapers or magazines. There seemed to be no new insights into the relationship between the two countries. Many of the points are repeated over and over again. The whole book is written in an overly academic language which is difficult to penetrate.
