Robert Lacey is a British journalist and the author of the bestselling books Majesty and Ford: The Men and the Machine, among others. In 1979, he moved with his family to Saudi Arabia for eighteen months to research his book, The Kingdom, an eye-opening and penetrating study of that country's complex and often paradoxical culture. The book was banned by the Saudi government of the time. For the past three years he has split his time between Saudi Arabia and London, gathering firsthand material for Inside the Kingdom at every level of Saudi society - from political dissidents and Guantanamo detainees to the innermost circles of the royal family. His documentary film, Rehab for Terrorists, was recently broadcast in America to widespread acclaim and can be seen on his website.
