Abstract:

"Dr. Roby Barrett's examination and study of some 200 years of the Sultanate of Oman's dynastic history is an excellent companion piece to his earlier work, Yemen: A Different Political Paradigm in Context. His Oman study puts into context the last four decades of the Sultanate's history to answer the question of whether Oman has changed fundamentally from a nation fraught with instability and conflict to one of peace and stability. Dr. Barrett's research focuses on the current rule of Sultan Qaboos and his approach to change, development, and modernity in a centuries-old culture that has experienced political, economic, and social upheaval throughout most of its early existence."--P. ix.
