UAE resources, commentary

I thought I would start a thread for any good literature about the United Arab Emirates. There isn't much on libcom at the moment and the only thing I have read thus far is the possibly fictional long-read by Johann Hari...

Yeah, I wouldn't say I know much of any importance about UAE but my first port of call would be to Middle East Eye. From a quick look it mostly looks like news articles but there might be something more in depth in there.

Al Jazeera as well.

Looks like there are a couple of documentaries on Youtube as well but no idea how good they are:

It's been a long time ago since I read this book, but perhaps there is something on the UAE in it.
Aburish, Said K.: A Brutal Friendship: The West and the Arab Elite. IIRC, most of his biographies of Arab leaders are pretty good.
