5.0 out of 5 stars A fine record, 2 Sep 2013
The authors of this splendid piece of research have done a great service in putting on record the history of Oman and that of Great Britains's involvement. What a useful book this would have been in the past for those taking up a post in Oman, or elsewhere in the Arabian Gulf, and it should be compulsory reading for those new to the area.
A most complicated history of a unique relationship comprehensively told.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book by the star ratings. The author is clearly very enthusiastic and this leads to a vast amount of repetition but, as a speedy read, perhaps others might not mind as much as I did. As so much information is in the public domain, this book is somewhat superfluous as it provides nothing new. However, I recognise that some might like the comfort of having the information readily available in their bookcase for those moments of great temptation.
I would suggest some editing, spelling and grammar corrections before further copies are printed as it smacks too much of a slapdash job by the author and publisher.
