    1 thought on “Sultan In Oman”

    1. When I was a young boy, the name Oman seemed rather magical as did Muscat, its capital. Along with Bahawalpur, the princely state within the Indian subcontinent & now part of Pakistan, such names were not so much launching points for future travel but places in an album to position colorful stamps. My sense of geography was enhanced via the stamps I collected as a child, many of them sent "on approval" from vendors in New York. It was a curious way to do business & in that long ago perio [...]

    2. Jan Morris's brand of prose-poetical musing has never really been my cup of tea (although it is highly regarded by many people who aren't, for whatever reason, me) but this books treats of a straight-up, if mild, adventure: the Sultan leads a convoy in triumph into his reconquered interior territories and invites Morris along for the ride.It was, and it makes much of the fact, a last chance to indulge old orientalist stereotyping of the old orientalist Arabia before oil money and religious fanat [...]

    3. Could not get through it. Read when I was going to Oman, and when I was in Oman. Mostly found it to be the same thing over and over and was left bored and un-inspired.

    4. Dated, yes, but still a fascinating insight into a period of time when the British Empire was on its last legs and the Gulf States were finding their identity. A quick read, if at times a dense read, but recommended.

    5. James, later Jan, Morris was a very good travel writer, with the ability to understand the fundamental aspects of a country and to distil the essence in her books, so that others can understand the country too. Here she turns her observant and critical eye on Oman, which at the time was a rather backward-looking, tradition-driven state.

    6. Jan Morris does Justice to the beauty, Not alone of the country but also the ever friendly folks! She gives you an insight on How Oman was just waking up from the long slumber and started taking baby-steps towards Modernisation and Development.

    7. Fabulous narrative of travels in a distant time and place. I highly recommend it for anyone planning to travel to Oman in reality or in an armchair.

    8. Absolutely superb piece of timeless travel writing. This book relates a piece of history, as the first transit through the interior of Oman by motor car, from Dhofar to Muscat via Nizwa, Buraimi and Sohar, whilst also creating history as the Sultan of Muscat (and Oman) through this journey unites the country to create what is now Oman.
