Qaboos bin Said, the Sultan of Oman, who came to power in 1970, found himself at the head of an inward-looking state deprived of the benefits of modernisation. During the first decade of his rule, the young leader succeeded in turning the country around. Today, Oman is a prosperous, progressive society with a high standard of living.
  Painting a portrait of Sultan Qaboos against the rich historical backdrop of the ruling dynasty that has governed Oman for more than 250 years, Sergey Plekhanov discusses the advantages of political institutions that are based on cultural and religious traditions and explores their capacity to answer the challenges of the twenty-first century.
  But this richly illustrated book is not merely an historical and political treatment, Sultan Qaboos' multi-faceted personality, ranging from experienced politician and benevolent leader to music-lover, is also explored.
