Dealer Notes
Susan Hillyard was the only European woman in Abu Dhabi at that time, and her diaries the only day-to-day written record. The society she describes in a very informal manner ranged from the relatively well-off sheikhs to those living in poverty. As an Arabic speaker she frequented all walks of life. This book is an invaluable source for those interested in the history and development of Abu Dhabi, and has been used as a source for the renovation of the Qasr el Hasn
