A Historical Atlas of Oman
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.
