Summary
  • This book examines the transformation of Oman from an obscure backwater to a dynamic modern state in less than two generations. It analyzes the role of Qaboos bin Sa'id, architect of the Omani 'renaissance,' who has followed a development model that reflects the country's unique history and cultural values
  • "This is a delightful book. It is insightful and masterful in its examination of Oman's place as a country in the region and, above all, in the world. Friends to all and enemies to none, Oman is truly a 'good news' story from the Middle East. This book adds to our knowledge of this wonderful country - a power for good and one that is very close to my heart." - Noel J. Guckian, Former British Ambassador to the Sultanate of Oman
