On November 20, 1979, worldwide attention was focused on Tehran, where the Iranian hostage crisis was entering its third week.
That same morning, gunmen stunned the world by seizing the Grand Mosque in Mecca, creating a siege that trapped 100,000 people and lasted two weeks, inflaming Muslim rage against the United States and causing hundreds of deaths.
But in the days before CNN and Al Jazeera, the press barely took notice. Trofimov interviews for the first time scores of direct participants in the siege, and draws upon hundreds of newly declassified documents.
With the pacing, detail, and suspense of a real-life thriller The Siege of Mecca reveals the long-lasting aftereffects of the uprising and its influence on the world today.
