The book describes the impact of cultural perceptions on rulers? behaviors in the United Arab Emirates, once the Trucial States. Despite differences in size, economic resources, and external political pressures, the seven emirates' rulers utilized very similar cultural expectations to gain the support of others. The author describes what has generally been only touched upon before - the significant but largely ?invisible? roles women and marriage play in the political process of tribal societies.
