In 1970 Sultan Qaboos took over a country that had no social or economic infrastructure. This book describes the process of political, social and economic transformationn that has turned it into a modern oil-producing state which has gained both regional influence and international respect. It also looks to the problems that Oman will face in the next decade as it aims to build on the successes of its first 20 years.
