Illustrated History of Kuwait

i came across this fantastic book about the history of kuwait – at first sight, i thought it was tintin, it looked so good on my colleague’s table i couldn’t tell it’s actually about kuwait.

the book is prepared by khaled abdullah al massad and illustrated by ali jelveh – it starts with a quick historical background on the region with some nice illustrations on failakh island and the greek era, then it touches base on the pre and post islamic era and the various battles between the tribes – what was also interesting is the story of the 3 branches of the “weal” tribe, al khalifah, al jalahmah and al subah who moved from al najad to the shores of the gulf, settling first in qatar then, kuwait.

the book is very interesting and the illustrations makes it fun to read – you can also bump into president bush who liberated kuwait after the invasion..

the book is sold at 6.5 kd, not sure though you can find it in all bookstores – for more information you can email historyofkuwait

thanks to manal for sharing the book.

New Kuwait University Campus

A documentary video for new Kuwait University campus, the design looks neat and clean. It’s located on the 6th Ring Road nearby Jaber Stadium and it looks it will be huge. I hope it finishes on schedule so they can resolve the excalating admission problem plus the issue with traffic congestion caused by the existing campuses that are located within busy areas of Kuwait.
