Check out this comprehensive and really lovely 1972 interview with Dame Violet Dickson (1896-1991), the wife of H.R.P. Dickson, British Political Resident in Kuwait from 1929-1936. It vividly describe the old way of life in this Eastern Arabian port, with a face to the sea and a face to the desert, and how modernization brought that old way of life to a rapid demise.
I am in Kuwait now, and have a terrible case of insomnia.
