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.

Webster’s bibliographic and event-based timelines are comprehensive in scope, covering virtually all topics, geographic locations and people. They do so from a linguistic point of view, and in the case of this book, the focus is on “United Arab Emirates,” including when used in literature (e.g. all authors that might have United Arab Emirates in their name). As such, this book represents the largest compilation of timeline events associated with United Arab Emirates when it is used in proper noun form. Webster’s timelines cover bibliographic citations, patented inventions, as well as non-conventional and alternative meanings which capture ambiguities in usage. These furthermore cover all parts of speech (possessive, institutional usage, geographic usage) and contexts, including pop culture, the arts, social sciences (linguistics, history, geography, economics, sociology, political science), business, computer science, literature, law, medicine, psychology, mathematics, chemistry, physics, biology and other physical sciences. This “data dump” results in a comprehensive set of entries for a bibliographic and/or event-based timeline on the proper name United Arab Emirates, since editorial decisions to include or exclude events is purely a linguistic process. The resulting entries are used under license or with permission, used under “fair use” conditions, used in agreement with the original authors, or are in the public domain.

In performing various economic analyses for its clients, I have occasionally been asked to investigate the market potential for various products and services in United Arab Emirates. The purpose of this study is to understand the density of demand within United Arab Emirates and the extent to which Dubai might be used as a point of distribution within The Middle East. From an economic perspective, however, Dubai does not represent a population within rigid geographical boundaries, rather, it represents an area of dominant influence over markets in adjacent areas. This influence varies from one industry to another, but also from one period of time to another. In what follows, I summarize the economic potential for Dubai over the next five years for hundreds of industries, categories and products. The goal of this report is to report the real economic potential, or what an economist calls the latent demand, represented by Dubai when defined as an area of dominant influence. The reader needs to realize that latent demand may or may not represent real sales. For many items, latent demand is clearly observable in sales, as in the case for food or housing items. Consider, however, the category “satellite launch vehicles”. Clearly, there are no launch pads in Dubai used by the space industry to launch satellites. However, the core benefit of the vehicles (e.g. telecommunications, etc.) is “consumed” by the area served by Dubai. Without Dubai, in other words, the market for satellite launch vehicles would be lower for the population in United Arab Emirates, The Middle East, or the world in general. One needs to allocate, therefore, a portion of the worldwide economic demand for launch vehicles to both The Middle East and Dubai. The data presented are the result of various spatial econometric and time-series forecasting models which, for each category presented, are applied to forecast and allocate demand across all countries of the world and major distribution centers or centers of dominant influence within each country. This is accomplished knowing that economic fundamentals (e.g. income) generally vary from one city to another within a given country over time. In this report, I report the allocation for each category for Dubai as an area of dominant influence in United Arab Emirates and, potentially, The Middle East. Important Caveat. Category definitions may overlap. The sum of multiple categories, therefore, may double count.
