Qatar: Sand, Sea and Sky documents the Qatar that many businessmen and travelers will never see. Beautiful photographs show not only the Persian Gulf’s modernity, but also its heritage, traditions, rich nature, and culture. A narrative by Diana C. K. Untermeyer, wife of the former ambassador, charts Qatar’s path to modernity and, with obvious sympathy to the Qatari people, moves readers behind the walls and into the salons casual travelers and even longtime expatriates may never see. Qatar: Sand, Sea, and Sky is a must-read not only for the short-term visitors or business travelers, but also the resident, Qatari or expatriate alike.
