Dr. William Agunwa's, Jobs for the Boys is an exploration of oil and its effects on Saudi Arabia throughout the 20th century,

told through a mosaic of stories set between 1930 and 1980.

In Jobs for the Boys, we are merely observers on an intimate journey; not just of through the eyes of the young Arabs struggling to use and understand their newfound oil wealth, or the Saudi princes who both help and hinder them, but also through the first-hand experiences of the foreign oilmen brought in to live and do business in a wild, changing land.

With thrilling moments of crystal cultural clarity, confusion of consciousness, and extremely radical Islamic idealism, Jobs for the Boys will change the way you understand Saudi Arabia.

"Ultimately, Jobs for the Boys is the tale of about a resource. An ocean of oil, hidden under the sand."

- LT Force, Bookchurch

"This is not the story of one life but of many lives which, taken together, are history."
