The Son King Book Summary :

In 2018, journalist Jamal Khashoggi was murdered by Saudi regime operatives, shocking the international community and tarnishing the reputation of Muhammad bin Salman, the kingdom's young, reformist crown prince. Domestically, bin Salman's reforms have proven divisive, and his adoption of populist nationalism and fierce repression of diverse critical voices--religious scholars, feminists and dissident youth--have failed to silence a vibrant and well-connected Saudi society. Madawi Al-Rasheed lays bare the world of repression behind the crown prince's reforms. She dissects the Saudi regime's propaganda and progressive new image, while also dismissing Orientalist views that despotism is the only pathway to stable governance in the Middle East. Charting old and new challenges to the fragile Saudi nation from the kingdom's very inception, this blistering book exposes the dangerous contradictions at the heart of the Son King's Saudi Arabia.

The King s Son Book Summary :

Marie, Maria, Marcelle, May, Mary, Maggie ... and the Duke of WindsorEdward, known to his inner circle as David, was the eldest son of King George V and Queen Mary of Teck. Within the family he was often referred to as Young David - a title he abhorred. He was invested as Edward, Prince of Wales on his sixteenth birthday, just nine weeks after his father, King George V, succeeded his grandfather as king in 1910.In 1936, upon the death of his father, Edward succeeded him as King Edward VIII. In the shortest reign in the last 450 years of British Kings and Queens, Edward abdicated 236 days later in favour of his brother when the British Government refused consent to his proposed marriage to Wallis Simpson. The American socialite had already divorced one husband who was alive and being still married, was intending to divorce her current husband to allow them to marry.As a young man, David served with the British Army in France during the First World War. In the years following, George V's relationship with his eldest son and heir, deteriorated. The king became increasingly disappointed in David's failure to settle down in life and was appalled by the continual reports of his very public relationships with mainly well-known, but married women.The first of his many trysts over the years, however, was quite different - his first not only continued as a love affair for nearly three years but resulted in the birth of a son in Paris in 1916 whilst the Prince was on active service in France... and remained a close-held secret. This is the incredible true story of the only son of Edward VIII ‒ later to become the Duke of Windsor and marry Wallis Simpson.

The King s Son the Evidence Book Summary :

This is the ultimate cold case, a 125 year old mystery hidden in plain sight. This book pieces the evidence together that William James Shepherd was closely related to a member of the British Royal Family. The case is built-up and includes clues that lead to a clear path forward - readied for a compelling conclusion and resolution to the mystery. If you like puzzles and a story that twists and turns with lots of detail - then you have the right book. If you like analysis with just a touch of mystery, then you also have the right book. If you want an "easy read" book, you may have the wrong book.This book is about determination to get to the bottom of a family rumor and mystery.This is a story of intrigue and challenge about a man who left enduring clues during his lifetime about his origins. The clues appear to have been left in a subliminal manner, and at times it was like participating in a movie somewhat like the "Da Vinci Code", with clue after clue being uncovered together with their meaning. This book is about how my maternal Grandfather William James Shepherd mysteriously arrives in Australia in the early 1900's, with the skills to be able to play the Double Bass and then goes on to become Australia's No. 1 performer. And yet in 1901, he is Census listed as a "Pauper Inmate" (age 10) in a London Workhouse orphanage - straight out of the pages of the book "Oliver Twist".William throughout his life, due to his looks and mannerisms, is often compared to various members of the then British Royal Family born in the late 1800's / early 1900's.Even today some of William's descendants continue to have comparisons made with various members of the current British Royal Family.DNA tests are used to set a test to prove the link, including the invention of a system and process that enables the parsing of atDNA in to the component ancestors of the DNA tester. It is a system and process that DNA testing companies may be interested to implement as a tool - refer Chapter 8.3.

Mbs Book Summary :

"MBS is the untold story of how a mysterious young prince emerged from Saudi Arabia's sprawling royal family to overhaul the economy and society of the richest country in the Middle East--and gather as much power as possible into his own hands. Since his father, King Salman, ascended to the throne in 2015, Mohammed bin Salman has leveraged his influence to restructure the kingdom's economy, loosen its strict Islamic social codes, and confront its enemies around the region, especially Iran. That vision won him fans at home and on Wall Street, in Silicon Valley, in Hollywood, and at the White House, where President Trump embraced the prince as a key player in his own vision for the Middle East. But over time, the sheen of the visionary young reformer has become tarnished, leaving many struggling to determine whether MBS is in fact a rising dictator whose inexperience and rash decisions are destabilizing the world's most volatile region. Based on years of reporting and hundreds of interviews, MBS reveals the machinations behind the kingdom's catastrophic military intervention in Yemen, the bizarre detention of princes and businessmen in the Riyadh Ritz-Carlton, and the shifting Saudi relationships with Israel and the United States. And finally, it sheds new light on the greatest scandal of the young autocrat's rise: the brutal killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi agents in Istanbul, a crime that shook Saudi Arabia's relationship with Washington and left the world wondering whether MBS could get away with murder. MBS is a riveting, eye-opening account of how the young prince has wielded vast powers to reshape his kingdom and the world around him"--

Son of a Buck Book Summary :

This story is ostensibly about a meeting, and the story of this meeting is told from the vantage of a middle-aged son reflecting on how his parents met in 1948. Throughout, it is evident that he believes in the romance that a time and place and a single event bring people together to foster a proverbial, eternal bliss. Nowhere in the story is the son's faith shaken, though there is much in the story that should dispell his faith. Consequently, he is at once glorious and unreliable. He is at once funny and sad. His aptitude for an unwavering belief in and pursuit of romance in his own life belies an ineptitude for realizing a romance of his own and, accordingly, earmarks as vain his quest for the happiness he assumes his parents must have found because of the first time they met. The various incidents of this ineptitude and his misfortunes in life, both funny and sad, parallel the reader's growing realization that, in as much as the narrator's happiness is an illusion, so too his parents' bliss is an unlikely claim for the narrator. Early in the story the son suggests a movie brought his parents together. So, in large part, his story is one of a quest for a movie, as if finding this movie is the remedy to the apparent malaise the son finds his life has become. He is a divorcee and a father in his own right vis--vis long-distant phone calls from his daughter; he is a poor graduate student of Latin and ancient Greek. And it is as if going home to a movie where his parents began as his parents, discovering his origins, will be the same as discovering and benefitting from a defining aspect of what he perceives as the success his mother and father enjoyed in their relationship. In becoming a story about a quest for origins, it also becomes apparent that the son's origin or definition is not the result of a parent's romance or bliss. It becomes apparent that he is a product of a relationship between a man and woman wrought in a slow, but inexorable, deterioration. Even the
