25 Years of the United Arab Emirates - A Celebration
The Resilience and Integrity of the UAE
As the various contributors make clear in their informative text, these contrasts bear witness to the remarkable achievements of the leaders of the United Arab Emirates over the past twenty five years. With the wisdom and foresight, and the inspiration of Islamic values, they have succeeded both in forging a common sense of national identity and in investing the wealth brought by oil for the mutual benefit of their citizens.
The book also describes how the resilience and integrity of the inhabitants of the United Arab Emirates, in the face of one of the most punishing environments on earth, prepared them for the challenge of adapting to such phenomenal change, while preserving their religious and cultural values. The ancient Arabian myth of the phoenix is an apt comparison for the transformation which the United Arab Emirates has undergone in the course of its short history.
