9780905743349: Old Oman

It has been said of Oman that "the middle ages stopped in 1970;" certainly before the accession of Sultan Qaboos, little had changed in the country's outward aspect for many generations. W.D. Peyton, an Arabist with a deep knowledge and love of Oman, has painstakingly amassed a stunning record of the country as it used to be. The result is a truly fascinating series of pictures of a world now utterly transformed. Old Oman will intrigue anyone whose knowledge of the country began in more recent years, and will enhance the recollections of those with a longer acquaintance with the country.
