All Publicity is Good Publicity

Craig Unger’s House of Bush, House of Saud: The Secret Relationship Between the World’s Two Most Powerful Dynasties won’t come out in the UK due to fears that the Saudi ruling clan might sue the author for libel under Britain’s more stringent laws. Still, British readers can always order it on the Internet, and if the publisher can orchestrate a clever marketing campaign around the theme “the book the Saudis don’t want you to read” they should be able to sell one or two copies.
