Synopsis

Details

Reviews

 
The publication of "Warlords of Oman" in 1967 coincided with the first export of oil from Oman and the beginning of momentous change in a country that had been virtually closed to the outside world. Since then under the leadership of His Majesty, Sultan Qaboos, the development of the country and its people has been recognized as an international success story.The events recorded in this book describe a very different state of affairs in a part of the world about which little was known at the time. Very few books had been published when "Warlords of Oman" first appeared in print.Although much has been written since about Oman and the events set down in this book, "Warlords of Oman" remains a classic of Arabian travel and experience. It is full of lively descriptions of people and places. Its pages abound with delightful scenes of local colour, lively encounters, fascinating characters and enthralling incidents.
