Oman: The Reborn Land
Oman: The Reborn Land
By F. A. Clements
Longman, 1980, 182 pp.

A British scholar provides a fact-filled and up-to-date survey of Oman covering the land, the people, political history, the economy, and foreign policy. He has high praise, with only slight and incidental qualification, for Sultan Qabus and for the reforms and programs he has instituted since the country was "reborn" through the coup d'état that put him on the throne in 1970.
