Oman's long and fascinating history is profiled in this beautifully illustrated historical atlas. Students will learn how the Portuguese conquered Oman from 1508 to 1659, until the Turks replaced them as a leading regional force during the rise of the Ottoman Empire. By tracing the geography and changing land borders, students gain an understanding of how Oman's nineteenth-century ties with Great Britain for military protection helped it gain power. This book is a unique examination of Oman's past and current civilizations and culture.
