Collected here for the first time is a history of Omán in images. One of the most developed and stable countries in the Arab World and among the earliest adherents to Ibidi Islam, the Sultanate seats along the east coast or the Arabian Peninsula. From early days of world trade through the port of Muscat to contemporary engagement with international diplomacy and the West, Oman has always evoked beauty and mistery in equal mesure. This beautiful designed volume reveals the country and its contours emerged over the past seventy years in an intimate portrait through the eyes of the West, as captured in images by english explorer Wilfre Thesiger in the 1940's, British Army Major Charles Butt in the 1970's, and award-winning American documentary photographer Edward Grazda in the first decate of this new century.
