    For centuries, the fortress city of Ha'il was the capital of the desert region of Najd, its stern mud-brick walls keeping invaders at bay. This absorbing, authoritative study traces its development and reprints classic accounts by European travellers from William Palgrave in the 19th century to Gertrude Bell in the 20th. Complete with chronology and genealogy, it chronicles the eventful history of its ruling Rashid dynasty, before surveying the growth of the modern city since its absorption into Saudi Arabia.
