Treason in the blood : H. St. John Philby, Kim Philby, and the spy case of the century by Anthony Cave Brown( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kim Philby has been called "one of the most remarkable double-agents to have been exposed in our time." Harry St. John Bridger Philby, Kim Philby's father and mentor, was one of the most intriguing intellectuals and adventurers of our time, a manipulator who played a key role in establishing the modern Middle East. In this dual biography, Anthony Cave Brown, tells the extraordinary story of two men whose lives were directly opposed to the establishment into which they were born and for which they were bred. St. John, the brilliant Arabist, became a Moslem and political adviser to King Ibn Saud. He was the middleman in the U.S. acquisition of the Saudi oil concession, called by the State Department "the greatest commercial prize in the history of the planet." And as St. John turned to Mecca, Kim turned to the Kremlin, serving as a secret agent against the Anglo-American intelligence services for fifty-three years
Oil, God, and gold : the story of Aramco and the Saudi kings by Anthony Cave Brown( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and Spanish and held by 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is the tale of what the U.S. State Department once called "the most valuable commercial prize in the history of the planet," the vast oil reserves beneath the sands of the Arabian desert. Using Aramco files never before available to scholars or journalists, dozens of personal interviews and U.S., British, and Saudi Arabian documents, Anthony Cave Brown recounts the unceasing diplomatic and corporate maneuvers aimed at obtaining - and then exploiting this unimaginable wealth. The ongoing drama involved such figures as the great Warrior-king Ibn Saud, founder of the Saudi dynasty; H St John Philby, the British scholar-adventurer who was a chief adviser to the king; the American philanthropist Charles Crane; Winston Churchill; Franklin Delano Roosevelt; the shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis; and oil industry executives such as Floyd Ohliger, Fred Davies and Frank Jungers, whose toughness and energy reflected the best in the great tradition of American industrial capitalism. Played out against a background of war and the turmoil of an ancient culture thrust abruptly into the twentieth century, the struggle to control the flow of Saudi oil was won by the United States, which emerged as the dominant Western power in the Middle East."--Jacket
