Security is an issue for every country, and this compilation of articles from the 1970s by Dr. Athol Yates explores the UAE’s most testing moments. Like any country, the United Arab Emirates has had its share of criminals, accidents, natural disasters and downright weird incidents. Most of these events merit a few pages in the newspapers before disappearing from history. The common theme of these articles is their impact on safety, security and stability of the UAE. Together, they not only provide a fascinating glimpse into the past, but they still resonate today.
