Few states have achieved such rapid and fundamental change in so short a time as Dubai.
From palmfrond huts to sumptuous hotels; from remote oases to vast man-made islands, this desert outpost has in just a few years been transformed into a dynamic and cosmopolitan centre of trade, enterprise and - most recently - tourism.
This book captures the essence of the Emirate, tracing its history and culture while highlighting the dramatic changes of recent years.
The result, with its stunning photography, is a visually arresting portrait of one of the most remarkable economic and cultural transformation stories of the Middle East.
