posted on 25/06/2008: 912 views



President HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan received yesterday the copy a new book, which chronicles the life and strivings of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan to build a nation. Minister of Presidential Affairs and Chairman of the Centre for Documentation and Research (CDR) HH Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan presented the book entitled ' Zayed: from challenges to Union' to Sheikh Khalifa at a ceremony held at al-Bateen Palace in Abu Dhabi.

Receiving the book, Sheikh Khalifa said that he is proud to have a copy of the book, which documents a shining phase in the history of UAE and tells the story of the struggle of the Late Sheikh Zayed for building a modern nation, on which we glory ourselves today.

Sheikh Khalifa said that the work will be a precious book of reference from which he will seek light and guidance to continue the march of the nation into the phase of empowerment that follows the phase of founding led by the departed leader. He hailed the efforts of the Centre for Documentation and Research in bringing out the book, and assured every support to the Centre in fulfilling its mission.

Sheikh Mansour expressed satisfaction over presenting the book to the President and stressed that the CDR will continue its efforts in documenting the history.

The new book comes as a serial to the earlier book titled 'Al Hisn Palace: History of Abu Dhabi Rulers 1793-1966'. The book, relying on British archives, chronicles three major periods in the political life of the Late Sheikh Zayed, beginning from the time he was appointed as the Ruler's Representative, then his assumption of power as the Ruler of Abu Dhabi, and to the period he was the President of the United Arab Emirates.

The book throws light on Sheikh Zayed's efforts to establish democracy in the country through consultation in decision-making process. The 'democracy of desert' Sheikh Zayed strove to found enhanced a distinctive political system that kept a meticulous equilibrium among the traditions and heritage, eternal religious values and modernity; the book proves. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
