Qatar And The Middle East


As the wife of an Ambassador in the Middle East, Diana Untermeyer had a unique perspective of events in the volatile region. But her husband was the ambassador in Qatar, a country that has thrived in ways so many other Middle Eastern countries have not. Ms. Untermeyer began to study why the country was charting its own course so well and spent time getting to know its people. Her book, Qatar: Sand, Sea and Sky, chronicles the rise of Qatar and how it could become a model for other middle eastern countries.
