Summary "In the light of the radical transformations and changes that the world has witnessed on all levels, research in the field of social issues is gaining increased prominence, praticularly amid different sources of danger that threaten social security in countries, due to changes in the nature of warfare and conflicts, the spread of extremism and terrorism, and the emergence of religious, sectarian, doctrinal, and racial tensions. Moreover, the unprecedented technological transformations in light of the fourth industrial revolution (4IR) with its social effects can compromise the stability and security of societies. Thefore, in this book I focus on studying UAE society in an ever-changing world from a comprehensive perspective that encompasses political, security, economic, social, cultural, and technological aspects. From an early stage in my academic career, I have given special attention - in my books, research papers, and studies - to issues of national security, at the forefront of which is social security. This stems from my belief that social security is one of the most important and critical aspects of national security in its comprehensive sense. Futhermore, social security is also closely associated with all other political, economic, cultural, and stability aspects of national security"-- provided by author
