The co-founder of CODEPINK has become famous for fearlessly tackling head-on subjects most of us studiously avoid. Often, she does so in person, as during President Obama’s speech at the National Defense University, or at a reception for drone manufacturers and members of Congress, or in Cairo, where she was assaulted by police. In her new book, she’s researching the sinister nature of the relationship between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia.
 

In seven succinct chapters, Benjamin — cited by the L.A. Times as “one of the high-profile members of the peace movement” — shines a light on one of the most perplexing elements of American foreign policy. What is the origin of this strange alliance between two countries that seemingly have very little in common? Why does it persist, and what are its consequences? With extremism spreading across the globe, and reduced U.S. need for Saudi oil, the time is right for a re-evaluation of our close ties with the Saudi regime.
