The United Arab Emirates is a thriving federation of seven Emirates, forming a crescent along the southern coast of the Arabian Gulf. Since 1971, when the newly independent Emirates joined together, the wise investment of oil revenues under the guidance of Ruler Sheikh Zayed has built the UAE into a prosperous commercial centre. Ambitious projects such as greening the desert, building airports and the founding of Al Ain University exemplify the long-term thinking of the Emirates' government, and have raised the international profile of this state. Every year increasing numbers of visitors enjoy the pleasures of the sandy beaches, the thrilling sports and bustling city life. In this book Helene Rogers has captured the marvels of the Emirates, both natural - the mountains, deserts and coasts - and man-made - from Iron Age forts to high-tech skyscrapers. This unique book will provide a memorable record to be treasured by visitors to the UAE and a tribute in honour of 1996's celebration of twenty-five years of independence and prosperity.
