From Pearls to Oil is a testament of the challenges contended by extraordinary men who initiated the search for oil in the United Arab Emirates in the years between the two World Wars.

This book features never-before-published copies of letters, notes and reports complementing the research, which stems from the archives of the Abu Dhabi Petroleum Company (ADPC) and other literature recorded by British Government officials.

With rare photographs and maps alongside the author's in-depth narrative, this book is a great asset for scholars, residents and visitors interested in the history of the United Arab Emirates.
