Khaled Suleiman al-Blooshi – Abu Dhabi During the Era of Zayed the First


A fascinating and rare history of the emirate of Abu Dhabi during the reign of Zayed the First, from 1855 to 1909.

Traces key events of the period, relations with Bahrain, Qatar and the British government, tribal disputes and the genesis of the modern emirate as it is today.

Includes transcripts and scans of archive material in English and Arabic, plus a superb fold-out diagram of the Al Nahyan family tree, from the 18th century to contemporary times.

Published in 2013 by Makarem in Abu Dhabi.

Now extremely rare to find outside of institutional libraries.
