Spectrum Guide to the United Arab Emirates (Spectrum Guides)
Camerapix (Editor)
March 2002
Book Description
The UAE, composed of the seven states of Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah, and Umm al-Quwain, have made the desert bloom-for the benefit of both citizen and tourist. Parks, golf courses, and racecourses stand in lush and verdant contrast to the desert sand, while gardens ablaze with tropical color enrich the wide, tree-lined roads and avenues of the Emirates' twenty-first century cities. Yet just outside civilization, the ancient sands of the Arabian Desert lure the visitor. With a detailed section on the economy, Spectrum Guide to the United Arab Emirates is the first comprehensive and visitor-friendly guide to this modern grouping of states. It is an essential companion for business travelers and tourists alike.

A Historical Atlas of the United Arab Emirates
Amy Romano
Jan 2004
From Booklist
Reviewed with Sherri Liberman's Historical Atlas of Azerbaijan.Gr. 4-6. Despite second-rate illustrations, these historical overviews will make useful supplements to relevant chapters in the Enchantment of the World books and similar assignment titles. Both authors present chronological accounts of their areas, from earliest human settlements to the early twenty-first century, including some cultural and geographic notes but focusing largely on political and ethnic topics. Considering oft-conquered Azerbaijan's turbulent past, Liberman does a creditable job of wrestling the successive peoples and leaders into coherence. Romano takes an easier path, blandly presenting the UAE as a modern success story, while, to judge from her bibliography, drawing information from English-language encyclopedias and travel guides....

THE UNITED ARAB EMIRATES (UAE) in 1993 was a federation of seven separate amirates that had joined together in the winter of 1971-72 to form a single independent country.

The individual amirates of the UAE include Abu Dhabi (also seen as Abu Zaby), Ajman, Al Fujayrah, Dubayy (also seen as Dubai), Ras al Khaymah, Sharjah (also seen as Ash Shariqah), and Umm al Qaywayn.

With United Strength: Shaikh Zayid Bin Sultan Al Nahyan: The Leader and the Nation
The Emirates Center for Strategic Studie
September 2005
Book Description
The formation of the United Arab Emirates in 1971, under Shaikh Zayid Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Ruler of Abu Dhabi, is one of the most significant milestones in recent Gulf history. He pioneered the modernization of the country and ultimately created an effective framework for collaboration with neighbouring Gulf states. This full-length biography analyzes the UAE's unique federal experience over its three decades of existence. It is an in-depth study of the birth of a modern nation, based largely on unpublished historical records and documents. The archival research behind the book and its meticulous documentation make it a valuable record covering an important era in the contemporary history of the Gulf region and the Middle East.

A Colonial Legacy: The Dispute over the Islands of Abu Musa, & the Greater & Lesser Tumbs
Farhang Mehr
September 1997
Book Description
This book deals with the legal status of the three islands of Abu Musa, and the Greater and Lesser Tumbs. In December 1971, the sixty-seven years of the Anglo-Iranian dispute over the islands transformed itself into Irano-UAE conflict--a conflict which Iran considers a colonial legacy inherited by the United Arab Emirates. The alliance of convenience between Iran and Britain cemented under Shah Abbas in the early seventeenth century had faded away by the mid-eighteenth century, after the collapse of the Safavid Dynasty. During the nineteenth century, the Anglo-Iranian relationship evolved into mutual distrust and resentment. The matter is complex, particulary because material facts and evidence, relating to a very short span of time in the nineteenth century, are ambiguous and debatable. British Colonial interests and...
