At the beginning of the 21st century the Arabian Peninsula and the Gulf have become increasingly identified with rapid urbanization, expanding oil profits, and massive importation of foreign labor. In this time of dramatic social and economic change, how does the traditional pastoral and nomadic way of Arabian life fare? Three anthropologists who have spent the last four decades researching the Bedouin in Saudi Arabia, Oman, and the UAE discuss what it means to be Bedouin in Arabia today.
