David Holden (1924–1977) was a writer, journalist, and broadcaster, best known as a journalist specialising in Middle-Eastern affairs, who was murdered in Cairo. His Farewell to Arabia (1966) and Greece Without Columns (1972) helped confirm his reputation for eurocentrism and racism. He began working on a third book, The House of Saud, about the Saudi royal family, in 1976. Before he could finish it however he was mysteriously killed, and the book had to be completed later by two other Middle-Eastern specialists, Richard Johns and James Buchan, both then with the Financial Times.
