Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The affluent oil-producing modern state which emerged in 1971 as the United Arab Emirates is deeply rooted in its cultural heritage. Present generations find themselves at a crossroads between tradition and modernisation. Aware of this, political leaders have paid considerable attention to folklore and cultural heritage and attempted to provide folklore with social and political relevance in modern society.

Synopsis:

A unique description and analysis of the domains and genres of UAE folklore, including folk customs and beliefs, traditional arts and crafts, folk dances, folk narratives and proverbs. Challenging the established meaning of folklife, this volume also deals with folklore in public life, in the mass media, in education and in politics.
