Media Office releases ‘Spirit of the Union’ in English

By Staff

The Dubai Government Media Office (DGMO) released on Monday the English version of the book ‘Spirit of the Union’ which has documented an important era in the history of the UAE as narrated by the UAE Vice-President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum in a unique lecture he delivered last December on the occasion of UAE’s 40th National Day.

The English version of ‘Spirit of the Union’ book presents a valuable in-depth view into the historical narration by Sheikh Mohammed who stood witness to pivotal junctures on the path to realising the dream state some 40 years ago.

Through his companionship with late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and the late Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Sheikh Mohammed’s testimony authenticates and corrects important historical facts and sheds light on undocumented details and challenges that stood in the way of establishing the union.

The ‘Spirit of the Union’ book in Arabic was well received by Emirati nationals, intellectuals, researchers and residents alike as it presented an invaluable recounting of history from which lessons can be drawn on how leaders tackle challenges in their quest of a higher cause.
