This Lonely Planet guidebook takes an in-depth look at Saudi culture, history and politics, and includes a special section for expatriate workers as well as detailed information for pilgrims on the Hajj.
His political discussions are actually quite dated, even though the book same out only a couple of years ago. Much has changed since 2002, when the Saudis themselves were the victims of terrorist attacks. The country is planning its first nation-wide municipal, elections, for instance. This would come as a major surprise if you were to rely on this book alone.
The book's not bad, but it's really for people who know nothing much about the country. There are better books available, particularly Thomas Lippman's "Inside the Mirage". That book, though longer, is actually easier to read.
