"The second part of the book covers the years of more measured economic development from 1976-90. On the political side it follows the growing U.S. relationship with Oman and the development of Oman's regional role. This section also deals with the evolution of Omani society, looking particularly at participation, the role of women, heritage and environment."--BOOK JACKET. "The third and final section looks forward to the next decade and considers the main problems that are likely to face Oman as it moves towards the year 2000."--BOOK JACKET." ;
