Synopsis

Half a century ago, Britain abandoned Aden, its last colonial outpost in the Arab world as its





attempt to establish a new polity foundered amid a rising tide of Arab nationalism, tribal





infighting and anti-colonial sentiment that eventually gave rise to the establishment of





South Yemen. Yet just over three years later in 1971, a new state, the United Arab Emirates,





emerged in Arabia, formed from the old Trucial states over which Britain had long held





sway. At a time when state failure and fragmentation has become synonymous with much





of the Middle East and where the very idea of sovereignty and legitimacy have become





contested issues, this comparative historical study of the varied British attempts at state





creation on the Arabian peninsula offers important insights into the limits of external ambition,





as well as the possibilities that great power retrenchment offered to the peoples of the





region. The legacy of British influence in Aden and Abu Dhabi still very much resonates





today; this volume explains why.
