In Princess, readers were shocked by Sultana's revelations about life in Saudi Arabia's royal family. Royal women live as virtual prisoners, surrounded by unimaginable wealth and luxury, privileged beyond belief, and yet subject to every whim of their husbands, fathers, and even their sons. Daughters of Arabia featured Sultana's teenage daughters, determined to rebel but in very different ways. And now, in Desert Royal, Sultana's fight for women's rights in a repressive, fundamentalist Islamic society, has an extra sense of urgency. The threat of world terrorism, the gathering strength of religious leaders and the discontent of impoverished Saudis are threatening to topple the comfortable world Sultana has known. But an extended family 'camping' trip in the desert brings Sultana and her relatives face to face with their nomadic roots, and nourishes her will to carry on the fight for women's rights in all Muslim countries. This updated edition contains an all-new chapter as well as a letter from Sultana herself, encouraging all women to take up the struggle for freedom for their abused sisters throughout the world.

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject Sociology - Culture, Technology, Peoples / Nations, grade: 10, , course: BA Dual Hons Social Sciences, language: English, abstract: The present term paper will try to compile the life and atrocities suffered by Saudi women, royals and commoners - the patriarchal society of Saudi Arabia, as well as the recent developments in Saudi Arabia with regard to women, both by taking references from the novels written by Jean Sasson as well as from the web sources. Princess - A trilogy, which is written by international author Jean Sasson, is a heart stirring novel about the life of a Saudi Princess Sultana, which is testimony to a woman of indomitable spirit and great courage. In this trilogy, Jean Sasson captured the flavours and reality of life in a country full of extremes and contradictions. Princess ‘Sultana’, a real Saudi princess closely related to king, lives those contradictions, with priceless jewels, many servants, unlimited funds at her disposal, but NO FREEDOM. Jean Sasson quotes princess ‘Sultana’ as, “A prisoner in a gilded cage with no vote, no control, and no value but as a mother of son, she is totally at mercy of the men of her life- her father, her brother, her husband’. In this novel, this bold Saudi princess gave an unvarnished look inside a closed society. ‘Sultana’ lifted the veil on the shocking world of forced marriages, sex slavery, honour killings and other outrages against women, both royal and common. By telling her story and miserable life of women in kingdom, ‘Sultana’ risked the wrath of the Saudi people and for this reason, she told her story anonymously through the bestselling author. This never forgetting real life story inspired me to write a term paper regarding society of Saudi Arabia, whose shimmers fade, when it comes to life of women

In einer Welt, in der Frauen für wertlos gehalten werden, steht sie für diejenigen ein, für die sonst niemand seine Stimme erhebt. Jean Sasson erzählt die wahre Geschichte von Sultana Al Saud, Prinzessin im Königshaus Saudi-Arabiens. Versteckt hinter ihrem schwarzen Schleier ist sie jahrelang gefangen in einem goldenen Käfig und wird Zeugin erschreckender Unterdrückung. Sie muss entsetzliche Taten mitansehen, die in jeder anderen Kultur als schockierende Verletzung der Menschenrechte gelten: 13-jährige Mädchen, die in die Ehe zu weitaus älteren Männern gezwungen werden, und junge Frauen, die aus fadenscheinigen Gründen brutal ertränkt oder gesteinigt werden. So verlangt es die Jahrhunderte alte saudische Tradition. Doch Sultana kann und will das nicht akzeptieren. Sie versucht mit allen Mitteln, die ihr zur Verfügung stehen, gegen die Unterdrückung der Frau vorzugehen - und verleiht somit denjenigen eine Stimme, die seit ihrer Geburt dazu gezwungen werden zu schweigen. Sultana lässt uns einen Blick hinter die Wände ihres goldenen Käfigs werfen. "Ich, Prinzessin aus dem Hause Al Saud" bezeugt das Leben einer Frau voller Mut und mit unerschütterlichem Geist.

It is time to decide whether the Scriptures of the three monotheistic religions born in the Middle East narrate valid history. Minimalists often dismiss Scripture in favor of secular source guides; resultantly, those who study ancient history suffer from the lack of truth and errant dates. A valuable historic timeline exists in Scripture! For centuries, many Bible translations relied on pieces of that timeline; but it suddenly disappeared from the spotlight. Achad-Ankh-Quest has revived Scripture's timeline, confirming its validity through a compilation of historic data found from secular sources. The unnamed Pharaohs of Scripture receive names and dates; their political atmospheres correspond to Scripture's narratives. Some archaeologists have searched for evidence confirming the dates of such things as the Exodus, to no avail. Only through Scripture's timeline does ancient history become clearer. Achad-Ankh-Quest will serve as a valuable resource for most anyone-layperson or scholar-if believed and utilized. Artist, Photographer, and Poet: Lia D is a true Renaissance woman. Her self-taught knowledge consists of numerous subjects, including Theology and Egyptology. Her eclectic work includes poetry anthologies, editorial pieces for local newspapers, and newspapers articles featuring her illustrations. Lia illustrated church newsletters, culminating in a stained-glass window arrangement glorifying Jesus Christ. Yet she believes, "God designs every good thing." Loving Scripture, photography, travel, and research, Lia ventured to the Holy Land many times. Lia or "Bringer of Good News" strongly encourages historians to reexamine the established history of ancient Egypt based on her decades of extensive research.
