A study of the Sultanate of Oman, painting a portrait of a nation through its diplomacy. Drawing on key research into Omani religious and social traditions, and ethnographic studies into Omani language and customs, this is the first book to connect Oman's international relations to itshistory, culture and social organisation. From colonial narratives and Cold War calculations to Iranian-US relations and the Middle East peace process, Oman has played an essential role in global diplomacy and international relations. For Oman, the idea of diplomacy refers not only to the country's interactions in the global community, butalso to how Omani life itself is shaped by principles and practices of social and political engagement that are essentially diplomatic.
