A Gulf History Reading List for Engineers

I have a tentative reading list in the making for ‘fresh of the boat’ technical experts and investors who are keen to partner in a post carbon Khaleej. The Airport Bookshop is not representative at all. Gulf is not an ATM, it has thaqafat and tarikh, or culture & history.


The context differs every few kilometres, the dialect of Arabic and Modern Southern Arabian Languages Group Languages and the traditional professions Infrastructure is not built on cultural white space. Engineers, Urban Planners and Architects need to understand the background ‘code’.
