Product description

Ar-Riyadh - The City and the Life
"The aim of the pages is to give a brief of glimpse of modern Ar-Riyadh, to show how much it has achieved over recent decades and to give some insight into the rhythm of its daily life. Contained between these covers is some small indication of the tremendous potential that this city now offers.
This book tells us the story of a long and distinguished history and of the surviving landmarks of that heritage, and describes how that unique past is being combined with a vigorous present with its own strong identity in a fusion that provides a moral framework and cultural inspiration for new generations.
It describes how a harsh desert environment has been transformed into a green oasis , and how a new city of imposing and stylish buildings has been created upon an infrastructure that is capable of supporting a modern, technologically-sophisticated economy, ensuring wealth and well-being for both the present and the future.
these pages present a strong, broadly-based economy that is rich both in terms of its financial resources and in its community of dynamic and innovative commercial enterprises.
The diversified educational resources of a highly intellectual city are also depicted, showing how the city has become a seat of learning that attracts students from all over the world.
The story of Ar-Riyadh is a chronicle of a unique society that with the help of Allah has become a model of prosperity, security, peace and happiness"

The book is in EXCELLENT CONDITION, GOOD AS NEW, internally clean and bright, shows signs of foxing inside the dust-jacket. The text is written in Arabic and in English and the books open and its read from the right to the left.
