About the Author

Michael Quentin Morton grew up in Qatar, Bahrain and Abu Dhabi in the 1950s and 1960s. A barrister using his first-hand knowledge of the region, he has written a number of books on the history of the Middle East including Buraimi: The Struggle for Power, Influence and Oil in Arabia (2013).


'A welcome, readable and much-needed starting point for new readers and new arrivals to the UAE who want a better understanding of the people and places around them. [...] Keepers of the Golden Shore draws from an extensive range of published sources to construct a detailed account of a time that saw the Arabian Gulf emerge from a fiefdom of the British Empire to a region of independent nations finding power and influence in the age of oil.' - James Langton, The National, UAE
