In a detailed examination of Oman under Qaboos, Calvin Allen and Lynn Rigsbee analyse political, military, economic, social and foreign policy development since 1970 with a focus on two themes: the continuity between the regime of Sa'id b. Taimur and that of Sultan Quaboos, and the domestic and international factors that have influenced government policies.

The review is very enlightening, however after reading this book I discovered the following websites which make very interesting reading - LOOK IF YOU DARE?? http://www.royalcourtofaffairs.com http://www.omanroyalcavalry.com These sites show the murder and neglect of the Sultans horses and I am totally appalled that people in this position can get away with this.
