Summary:
"In the 1960s, oil was discovered in the Middle East, and the economic and cultural impact of that discovery has caused a building boom unparalleled elsewhere in the world at any time in history. The vitality of the region is evidenced by an architectural style that, unlimited by monetary constraints, is opulent, and yet somehow manages to handle the extremes of climate and tradition successfully."--Jacket.
