This first part of the autobiography of Dr Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi spans the years until his selection as ruler of Sharjah as a young man aged 33. It reveals the emergence of the man and the state, documenting the dramatic palace coups in Sharjah and the neighbouring emirate of Ras Al Khaimah, set alongside the struggles for power during the formation of the United Arab Emirates 40 years ago. Revealing fascinating and hitherto untold parts of the history of the Gulf state, the author's story is told with humour and passion.
