About the Authors
  • This six-year period is of particular interest because of the coup d'etat which saw the deposition of Sultan Said bin Taimur and the accession of his son Sultan Qabus bin Said. Whereas under Sultan Said Britain was closely bound to Oman in areas of foreign and defence policy, under Sultan Qabus the country moved away from reliance on Britain, opening up to international influences and forging ahead with internal social policy. The progress on social reform had some impact on the strength of the insurrection in Dhofar and in 1971 the Dhofar Liberation Front agreed to work with the new administration. The other two main rebel fronts continued to oppose Sultan Qabus. However, the new Sultan's policies of regional cooperation led, by 1976, to regional powers such as Iran, Saudi Arabia and the UAE offering military aid and to an agreement to a cease-fire.

      In these 4200 pages ArchiveEditions presents a comprehensive collection of facsimile original British Government documents detailing the history of Oman between 1966 and 1971. 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

      This six-year period is of particular interest because of the coup d'état which saw the deposition of Sultan Said bin Taimur and the accession of his son Sultan Qabus bin Said. Whereas under Sultan Said Britain was closely bound to Oman in areas of foreign and defence policy, under Sultan Qabus the country moved away from reliance on Britain, opening up to international influences and forging ahead with internal social policy. The progress on social reform had some impact on the strength of the insurrection in Dhofar and in 1971 the Dhofar Liberation Front agreed to work with the new administration. The other two main rebel fronts continued to oppose Sultan Qabus. However, the new Sultan's policies of regional cooperation led, by 1976, to regional powers such as Iran, Saudi Arabia and the UAE offering military aid and to an agreement to a cease-fire. 

    • 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, Qabus bin Said, 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.
