This book traces the narrative of a little-known and relatively stable Arab country whose history of independence, legacy of interaction with diverse cultures, and enlightened modern leadership have transformed it in less than fifty years from an isolated medieval-style potentate to a stable, dynamic, and largely optimistic country.At the heart of this fascinating story is Omans sultan, Qaboos bin Said, friend to both East and West, whose unique leadership style has resulted in both domestic and foreign policy achievements during more than four decades in office.Exploring Oman from a historical perspective, Funsch examines how the countrys unique blend of tradition and modernization has enabled it to succeed while others in the region have failed.

Accounts of the authors own experiences with Omans transformation add rich layers of depth, texture, and personality to the narrative.
