A landmark book that will be vital to historians of Oman and analysts of the geopolitics of the Persian Gulf. Draws on previously unpublished Foreign Office archive materials.

Oman's location at the mouth of the Persian Gulf, pincering oil flows with Iran, is of huge strategic importance and makes it the focus on increasing political interest.
