This is the second in the series of three titles that combine to create a large collection which offers historical evidence for the creation of Saudi Arabia, illustrating the political, social and economic changes which in just over half a century transformed the desert amirate into one of the richest countries in the world. The period 1961 to 1965 includes details of the illness of King Saud, his power struggle with Prince Faisal and the eventual accession of King Faisal; the death of Yusuf Yasin; boundary disputes including those at Buraimi, Khor al-Odaid and the boundary with Yemen, sometimes exacerbated by the demands of the oil industry; the intervention of the United Nations in the Buraimi dispute; Saudi-Jordan defence and economic agreements; UAR aggression against Saudi Arabia, particularly the poor relations between Cairo and Riyadh.
