9781107641952: Joyriding in Riyadh: Oil, Urbanism, and Road Revolt (Cambridge Middle East Studies)

Why do young Saudis, night after night, joyride and skid cars on Riyadh's avenues? Who are these "drifters" who defy public order and private property? What drives their revolt? Based on four years of fieldwork in Riyadh, Pascal Menoret's Joyriding in Riyadh explores the social fabric of the city and connects it to Saudi Arabia's recent history. Car drifting emerged after Riyadh was planned, and oil became the main driver of the economy. For young rural migrants, it was a way to reclaim alienating and threatening urban spaces. For the Saudi state, it jeopardized its most basic operations: managing public spaces and enforcing law and order. A police crackdown soon targeted car drifting, feeding a nationwide moral panic led by religious activists who framed youth culture as a public issue. The book retraces the politicization of Riyadh youth and shows that, far from being a marginal event, car drifting is embedded in the country's social violence and economic inequality.

Book Description:

Why do young Saudis, night after night, joyride and skid cars on Riyadh's avenues? Who are those "drifters" who defy public order and private property? Based on four years of fieldwork, Joyriding in Riyadh explores the history and social fabric of Riyadh, as well as that of Saudi Arabia. For young rural migrants, car drifting is a way to reclaim threatening urban spaces. It is now the target of a nationwide police crackdown. The book shows that, far from being a marginal event, car drifting is embedded in Saudi Arabia's social violence and economic inequality.
