SLEEPING WITH THE DEVIL How Washington Sold our Soul for Saudi Crude

by | Read by Robert O'Keefe

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2003

Baer's title critiques America's relationship with Saudi Arabia, explaining how our American dependence on oil has led us astray. The author provides a wealth of historical, political, and economic details, but weaves them into a highly personal story that incorporates his decades of CIA experience in the region. Robert O'Keefe's narration captures this intimate quality well. He sounds so personally involved with the story he's telling--and so angry over the duplicity and danger described--that it's hard to remember it's not the author speaking. His facility with Arabic terms underscores this impression. The only weakness is organizational; section breaks are abrupt, and O'Keefe's powerful voice may increase listener confusion, rather than diminishing it. G.T.B.
