Building a Nation

Building a Nation is a unique collection of more than 750 historic pictures which chronicle the story of the extraordinary development of the UAE. Brought to you exclusively by Gulf News, many of these pictures have never been published in the UAE before, and months of research have gone into finding the pictures from sources all around the world.


The book is organized into five chapters telling story of the country from its very simple beginnings before the federation, then through its four decades right up to today’s modern state. It shows how the seven emirates which would make up the UAE started with very basic conditions, and then how economic development poured into the UAE, with roads, buildings, bridges and airports transforming the social environment in a very short space of time.
