Born in 1948 in Abu Dhabi, the author knew fierce poverty in the years before fabulous oil wealth transformed his country for ever. He grew up in the ruler's palace, barefoot like his friends who are all now senior figures in the United Arab Emirates. An eye-witness account of the total transformation - within only 30 years - of a Bedouin society into a country with the world's highest per capita income. The author provides remarkable insights into the workings of the business community and the ruling elite with the UAE.
