The book explores Hudson’s thesis that the UAE is the “Exponential Country for the Exponential Age”, and has turned from a “start-up nation to a scale-up nation”.
The book tells the history of the country through the eyes of the people that have been, and continue to be, a part of its success, with 50 interviews, representing the fabric of Emiratis and expats who call the country home.

“It is a huge honour to unveil my book here and appear at the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature. Documenting the history of the country through the eyes of the people who have seen it and been part of its success is so important. This is the legacy that mustn’t be lost to the passing of time, and is critical for the future,” said Hudson.
Hudson has spoken to ruling family members,ministers, CEOs, economists, futurists, scientists, technologists, artists and astronauts. The chapters are grouped into 10 sections, representing the History and Heritage of the country, Energy transition, the Economy, the Environment, Tourism, Trade, Talent, Innovation, International Cooperation and the Future.
