1 Christopher M. Davidson Abu Dhabi: Oil and Beyond
Columbia University Press 2009-07-15 0231701063 / 9780231701068 Hardcover New 
0231701063 2009 Columbia University Press. Brand new hardcover copy, still sealed in the original publisher's shrinkwrap. "Abu Dhabi has begun to eclipse its partner city, Dubai, in terms of sheer wealth and cultural and infrastructural development, opening the world's first Ferrari theme park and erecting satellite branches of the Guggenheim and the Louvre. Author of the best-selling Dubai: The Vulnerability of Success and an expert on Gulf politics, Christopher M. Davidson tracks Abu Dhabi's remarkable growth from a modest, eighteenth-century sheikhdom to its present opulent state. He recounts the dramatic efforts made by the emirate's dynastic family to retain their power, detailing the system of "tribal capitalism" they created in order to reconcile old political allegiances with modern engines of growth." 100% satisfaction guaranteed.
