The Establishment of the United Arab Emirates 1950-85, Hardback Book

The Establishment of the United Arab Emirates 1950-85 Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: History of the Middle East series

Description

The United Arab Emirates were established in response to the British decision to withdraw from the Gulf by 1971.

This decision, announced in 1968, had left the rulers of the emirates perplexed and alarmed.

After decades of mutual suspicion and rivalry, fostered by British imperial dominance, the emirates were now obliged to seek security in federal union.

This book, first published in 1987, chronicles this process which led to the establishment of the UAE and explains the circumstances which brought it about.
