The Prince chronicles the life of Bandar bin Sultan through his varied roles at the nexus of American and Saudi political life. Prince Bandar bin Sultan has been instrumental in strengthening the ties between America and Saudi Arabia in the last two and a half decades. The illegitimate son of a Saudi prince and a servant girl, Bandar used his profound influence to convince Gorbachev to withdraw the Soviet military from Afghanistan. He had also immensely helped President Reagan to win the Cold War with Saudi petrodollars. A crafty and intelligent manipulator, he played a major part in ending the Iran-Iraq war and had a key role in the Iran-Contra affair. In this biography, the author provides an incisive look into the fascinating life of an extraordinary Prince, who was one of the driving forces behind American foreign policy throughout the 1980s and '90s. This book is a must-have for those interested in knowing about Prince Bandar bin Sultan.
