Hello Dubai: Skiiing, Sand and Shopping in the World's Weirdest City

Author(s): Joe Bennett

Travel - Narratives

Boom town, modern marvel, commercial hub, where middle-east meets wealthy west, playground for tourists, crawling with ex-pats, built by Indians, owned by Arabs, Dubai has risen from next to nothing to an awful lot in little more than thirty years. How? And can it go on? Has it sold itself to the corporate dollar? Is it anything more than a mall in the desert? Will the sands return? Joe Bennett goes to find out.

First published June 2010.

I love his books and his self-deprecating, slightly cynical view of life is an absolute delight! This one is also a must read for his fans and those of you who haven't yet discovered him. Try it. It was being read on the National Programme earlier this month. - Peter
