The United Arab Emirates: A Modern History

By Mohammad Morsy Abdullah
Barnes & Noble, 1978
365 pp. $21.50

Most of this book is about the period before there were United Arab Emirates. Largely a history of Britain and the Trucial States before World War II, it also covers in scantier fashion developments up to the British withdrawal in 1971. The fruit of much research by an Arab scholar and official, it contains a wealth of information.
