Visionary statesmen who have created an enduring state edifice through purposeful consensus and persuasion remain a historical rarity. The formation of the United Arab Emirates on December 2, 1971 under the inspiring leadership of its founding father, H.H. Shaikh Zayid Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, is a unique example of the building of a prosperous nation that has earned its founder his rightful place among the outstanding statesmen of all time.
Against the backdrop of the British withdrawal from the Arabian Gulf region, it was H.H. Shaikh Zayid who accomplished the complex task of unifying the erstwhile Trucial States, creating the only thriving federal state in the Middle East. While fulfilling his personal destiny as the chosen leader, H.H. Shaikh Zayid strengthened the nation by uniting disparate tribal groups and sustained it against formidable challenges. He pioneered the modernization of the country and ultimately realized his dream of an effective framework for collaboration with neighboring Gulf states. The UAE has since become a constructive force within the region and beyond, exemplifying the principles of national unity, regional solidarity, international cooperation and religious tolerance.
This book adopts a scholarly approach in analyzing the UAE’s unique federal experience, its phenomenal achievements and H.H. Shaikh Zayid’s far-sighted policies. It is an in-depth study of the birth of a progressive nation and the pivotal role of its leader, based largely on unpublished historical records and documents. The factual foundation of the book and its meticulous documentation make it a valuable record covering an important era in the contemporary history of the Arab Gulf region.
