CultureShock! Saudi Arabia provides an insight into living and working in a kingdom where Islam governs almost every aspect of life. Uncover the true psyche of the Saudi people—the men clad in their thobes and gutra and women in their abayas—and their unique way of life, a lifestyle which foreigners may find alien and a challenge to cope with. Containing valuable information not only on the practical aspects of settling in, this book will give tips on how best to integrate into Saudi society. Learn about Saudi laws and be aware of what might get you thrown in jail or under the executioner’s axe. CultureShock! Saudi Arabia is essential for anyone who wants to fully understand this Islamic country and get the most out of his or her stay in the kingdom.
