Monsoon Revolution : Republicans, Sultans, and Empires in Oman, 1965-1976 Hardback

Part of the Oxford Historical Monographs series


The Dhufar revolution in Oman (1965-1976) was the longest running major armed struggle in the history of the Arabian Peninsula, Britain's last classic colonial war in the region, and one of the highlights of the Cold War in the Middle East.Monsoon Revolution retrieves the political, social, and cultural history of that remarkable process.

Relying upon a wide range of untapped Arab and British archival and oral sources, it revises the modern history of Omanby revealing the centrality of popular movements in shaping events and outcomes.

The ties that bound transnational anti-colonial networks are explored, and Dhufar is revealed to be an ideal vantage point from which to demonstrate the centrality of South-South connections in modern Arab history.
