As the United Arab Emirates marks the 50th anniversary of it becoming an independent state, the National Council is pleased to share several articles about the UAE's establishment written by the Council's Founding President & CEO Dr. John Duke Anthony. Dr. Anthony, cosponsored by the British and the U.S., was the sole American scholar allowed to observe firsthand the process of Britain abrogating its treaty obligations to administer the defense and foreign relations for nine Arab states of eastern Arabia and the Gulf.

In the summer of 1972, Dr. Anthony wrote an analysis of the structural and political dynamics of the UAE after its first half year --

"The Union of Arab Amirates":
https://ncusar.org/publications/Publications/1972-07-01-The-Union-of-Arab-Amirates.pdf

In 1975, Dr. Anthony wrote an essay on some of the characteristics of political and socioeconomic change in the UAE --

"The Impact of Oil on Political and Socioeconomic Change in the United Arab Emirates":
https://ncusar.org/publications/Publications/1975-12-01-Impact-of-Oil-on-Political-Socioeconomic-Change-in-UAE.pdf

In 1981, Dr. Anthony produced a study of dynamics in the UAE during its first decade as an independent state --

"The United Arab Emirates On The Occasion Of Its Tenth Anniversary: A Political Analysis":
https://ncusar.org/publications/Publications/1981-12-01-UAE-Political-Analysis.pdf

And, in 2002, Dr. Anthony published a longer analysis reflecting on the birth and evolution of the UAE --

The Al Bidya Mosque in Fujairah is the oldest standing mosque in the United Arab Emirates. The most recent dating analysis of coral stone in the structure suggests it was built in 1599.⠀

The mosque is distinct for its unique design, with a small prayer room sitting below four unequally sized, layered domes. The domes are supported by a single central pillar. ⠀

The mosque had been painted white prior to restoration work on its structure, grounds, and nearby watchtower (pictured behind it on a hill) in the past couple decades. It is now a natural stone brown color. The fortified tower is one of two near the mosque that were constructed by the Portuguese.⠀
