Description from the publisher:

Based on new information gathered from extensive fieldwork in Saudi Arabia and elsewhere; this account sheds light on the story and legacy of Juhayman al-‘Utaybi; the militant who led the 1979 takeover of Islam's holiest site: the Grand Mosque in Mecca. Detailing the events that would set in motion numerous attacks on the U.S. embassy in Pakistan and Shia uprisings in oil-rich areas of Saudi Arabia; this record offers insight into the religious inspiration behind the rebel leader's message and acknowledges many unanswered questions: Who were the rebels and what did they want? Why and how did Juhayman's group come into existence? What was Juhayman al-‘Utaybi's ideological legacy and how have his writings influenced contemporary Islamist strains?
