About the Authors
  • The years 1961 to 1965 saw a political struggle take over from the armed conflict of the 1950s. Alhough the rebellion in the interior had been suppressed the Imamate took their claims of oppressive government, and alleged public hostility to Sultan Said bin Taimur, to the United Nations. However, in 1961, a resolution in support of a separate independence for Oman failed despite the support of a number of Arab states which dissapproved of the close links Sultan Said bin Taimur maintained with the British Government. In 1963 a UN Commission refuted the Imamate's claims against Sultan Said bin Taimur but a committee was formed to study the problem. In 1965 it submitted its report and a UN resolution was finally formed which included the recommendation of 'the elimination of British domination in any form'.

    • Resume

      In these 3500 pages Archive Editions presents a comprehensive collection of facsimile original British Government documents detailing the history of Oman between 1961 and 1965. The intention of this collection was to compile all the pages relating to the history and development of Oman for this period, therefore the key events are covered in greater detail than in the collection
      for 1867–1960. 

    • Historical Overview

      The years 1961 to 1965 saw a political struggle take over from the armed conflict of the 1950s. Alhough the rebellion in the interior had been suppressed the Imamate took their claims of oppressive government and alleged public hostility to Sultan Said bin Taimur to the United Nations. However, in 1961 a resolution in support of a separate independence for Oman failed despite the support of a number of Arab states which dissapproved of the close links Sultan Said bin Taimur maintained with the British Government. In 1963 a UN Commission refuted the Imamate's claims against Sultan Said bin Taimur but a committee was formed to study the problem and in 1965 it submitted its report and a UN resolution was formed which included the recommendation of “the elimination of British domination in any form”. The records for these years also show the rather introverted nature of the policies of the Sultan and the economic focus of his administration upon the armed forces. 

    • Documentary Importance

      Whereas the records for the 1867-1947 were largely derived from documents in the British Library's India Office Collection, those from 1948 to 1960, (included in Records of Oman 1867-1960), and those for 1961-1965 presented here are drawn principally from documents in the National Archives at Kew, London. These include many letters written by the Sultan, Saiyid Said bin Sultan, as well as Official British Government documents, including Cabinet papers, many of them top secret, and now published for the first time.

      Understanding the series

      The three Records of Oman titles combine to create a large collection which offers historical evidence for the political, economic and social evolution of Oman. Such evidence improves our understanding of the modern political position of Oman. It includes, for example, examination of frontier negotiations and questions of sovereignty; constitutional, military and defence developments.
