The Wahhabi Mission and Saudi Arabia

The history of the Wahhabis' close, loyal alliance with the ancestors of the present Saudi royal family has been recounted in fascinating, and persuasive detail by David Commins. His conclusion is no less startling as it is important, that Wahhabi hegemony over regional religious culture is in jeopardy, its credibility debased, possibly no longer able to buttress the Saudi dynasty's legitimacy. Whatever their future, the story of the Wahhabis has been told with authority and clarity by Commins in this absorbing book._x000D_ - David Waines, Professor of Islamic Studies, Lancaster University_x000D__x000D_'David Commins' careful, comprehensive and erudite account of Wahhabism in Saudi Arabia could not have come at a more opportune time. After so many tendentious and uninformed treatments of the subject in recent years, it is a pleasure to read a real historian's account, based upon original Arabic sources. Everyone involved in the public debate about Saudi Arabia's role in the Muslim world should read this book.'_x000D_-F. GREGORY GAUSE, UNIVERSITY OF VERMONT_x000D__x000D_'David Commins' work makes major contributions toward understanding the historical development of Wahhabism, particularly in the 19th century. His analysis of 19th century Wahhabi thought demonstrates the interplay between religion and politics during this critical time, setting the stage for the 20th century founding of the contemporary Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.'_x000D_-NATANA J.
