What we do
The Al Manakh books offer a detailed analysis of current urban conditions in the Gulf and discuss the implications of the rapid development of this territory for the rest of the world.
Through essays, photography, data, and historical documents, the books trace the Gulf’s journey from a relatively unknown region to its current role as a major player on the global stage. The series offers a detailed inquiry into the history, culture and architecture of the Gulf to evaluate how the recent development boom has not only shaped urban centers in the region but also the impact this development has had worldwide. Using a signature style and a unique methodology to chronicle the pace of modernity in the Gulf through a plurality of voices, the Al Manakh publications are an invaluable source for historians and other observers of the region.
