From the cover: “Twenty-five years ago the United Arab Emirates was a fledgling federation of little-known desert emirates taking its first tentative steps into modern statehood. In the intervening period, a brief spasm in the historical record, an unprecedented transformation has been accomplished and the United Arab Emirates has taken its place on the world stage. The Chronicle of Progress charts this highly unique twenty-five years of development using a different approach to the many other books celebrating the UAE's silver anniversary. For the first time, a team of researchers has systematically sifted through national and international newspapers covering those years in order to compile a day by day record of achievement.”
