In the early fifties, Aramco began an intensive effort to combat the number one public enemy in the Eastern Province, the fly. A massive mosquito eradication program had been very effective in reducing the incidence of malaria in the region, but DDT alone wasn’t enough to reduce the fly population. What was required was a change in public behavior.

Announcing the Release of "Petra: A Brief History"

BY Aramco ExPats / /

Petra: A Brief History by David W. Tschanz, is an easy-to-read, popular history of one of the world’s most fabled cities and the mysterious people who built it. This is the ideal book for anyone who wants to know the entire story behind the "rose red city half as old as time," and the little known Nabataeans, who carved Petra from the living rock of Jordan's Sharah Mountains.
