Product description

As the development of oil resources, increasing trade opportunities and federal unification shaped seven disparate sheikhdoms into a united country, photographer Ramesh Shukla was there to chronicle the formative years of the nation. From picturesque scenes of city souks and portraits of traditional life, to the signing of the Federation on 2 Decenmber 1971 and the fast-changing city skylines of the new millenium, Ramesh witnessed and recorded history in the making.144 pp . The dust jacket has a 1/4" closed tear near the top of the spine and a slightly larger one on the front outside edge but shows little shelf-wear. The spine is rubbed at the top but the binding is tight. The photographs, text and cut edges are very clean and unmarked.
