Oman - Eastern Promise
'Oman - Eastern Promise' is set in Oman at a time when it was leaving behind its almost medieval character and adjusting to becoming a modern Middle Eastern state with a booming oil industry. Peter Daniels, a police chief superintendent from London is sent with a colleague to train a number of Omani police officers to eventually take over responsibility for running the Omani police service. Seen through his eyes the challenges facing the new sultan and the country are explored, providing a vivid picture of its people who a few years earlier were involved in slavery. The beauty and romance of this desert kingdom is not ignored, together with the corruption and dangers of armed rebellion.
