Product Description

An excellent book . . . Frauke Heard-Bey's literary style, together with her perception and depth of analysis, make her work stimulating, illuminating and a joy to read - Arab Gulf Journal.

Few countries have changed as rapidly in the course of one generation as the United Arab Emirates. How did these momentous developments affect the society? This definitive book provides a solidly researched picture of the traditional way of life in the seven Trucial States before the wealth from oil and the transformation into the most stable of federations in the Arab world opened completely new horizons. The author has lived in Abu Dhabi continuously since 1967 and is ideally placed to provide an insight into the background behind many recent and current developments in the UAE.
