The United Arab Emirates: A Study In Survival

Product Description
The United Arab Emirates has remained a mainstay of stability in an increasingly volatile Middle East, managing to maintain a traditional polity despite the impact of rapid modernization and globalization. This in-depth study explores the many contradictions that characterize the UAE and its position within the international system. Davidson first provides a detailed historical background, tracing the recent history of the lower Gulf region, the British involvement in the area, and the establishment of the federation of emirates. He then turns his attention to the UAE’s seemingly anachronistic political structure and its socioeconomic development. His astute analysis highlights the UAE’s achievements, as well as the problems that have persistently undermined its development objectives.
