    From Library Journal
    The Sultanate of Oman is one of the least-studied countries in the Persian Gulf. This book by an associate political scientist at The Rand Corp. and a keen observer of recent developments in the Gulf goes a long way toward filling the gap in our knowledge of the domestic and external dynamics of contemporary Oman. The author has done an admirable job of interweaving a vast array of Western and Arabic source materials, including interviews with key Omani officials, into a coherent, readable, and much-needed volume on Oman's foreign policy. The book contains an extensive bibliography and useful statistical charts. Highly recommended for Middle East specialists and students of foreign policy.

    Review
    Those interested in Oman and the region will be grateful for Kechichian's thorough and informative study.
    Middle East Policy


    A first rate book that is not only the first study of its kind, but will become the starting point for all future analyses of Omani foreign policy. This work should serve as a model for much needed studies of the foreign affairs of other Gulf states. Highly recommended.

    An extremely valuable contribution to our understanding of the contemporary Gulf by documenting Oman's foreign policy.
