The creek is a part of everyday life in Dubai – it is an important trade hub, a much-loved tourist attraction and a quick way of getting from one side of Dubai to the other. But it is also intricately attached to the whirlwind history of Dubai, so much so that one has to wonder how differently Dubai might have developed had it not had this watery lifeline running through it. With photography by Narain Sawlani and text written by Stephen Bremner, this fascinating book unravels the magical transformation of the emirate from a sleepy, sandy town that subsisted on pearling and fishing, to a gleaming, modern metropolis that is pushing the frontiers of development.
