Hard covered book titled THE DUBAI HANDBOOK Edited by Erhard Gabriel, 1987, Written and Published for Dubai Petroleum Company, 1987, Printed in the Federal Republic of Germany, 243 pages.
This book provides a detailed description and, for the first time, an economic geography of the Emirate. All the information and data contained reflect the situation up to summer 1986, unless otherwise stated. It was written with the non-Arabic speaker in mind, and no systematic attempt was made to standardize the transliteration of Arabic words. Place names follow the spellings shown on current maps, particularly those published by the Dubai Municipality.
Topics include: The Setting - The Arabian Peninsula, The Arabian Gulf, Dubai The Natural Scene, the People, and The Economy.
A foldout map is included in a pocket in the rear. The book is in VG+ condition, pages clean and intact, and the binding is tight. Would make a fabulous addition to any library.
