Saudi Arabia is a country characterized by a unique coexistence of the traditional and the modern. Known as the "Land of the Two Holy Mosques" because of the sacred sites at Mecca and Medina—considered the two holiest places in Islam—Saudi Arabia holds a central position in the Muslim world. Known also for its oil reserves—the largest in the world—Saudi Arabia is positioned at the heart of the global economy, and oil money has brought rapid development and change to a largely traditional society.About the Author:
