The book is a useful addition to the country study series. The mass of information, contained therein, provides detailed accounts of the various aspects of the UAE economy, particularly the role of oil, foreign trade and finance sectors and the state of social and economic infrastructure and should prove to be valuable to a student of the Middle East economy. It is, however, essentially a narrative lacking in analytical content. A wealth of information is provided but there is little in terms of statistical data.
