Danish physician Stig Pors Nielsen shares life experiences from the time he spent as an expatriate in the beautiful, unspoiled land of the Sultanate of Oman in his new book, “Oman: Stories from a Modern Arab Country” (published by AuthorHouse UK).
Nielsen sings the praises of the modern Arab country led by Sultan Qaboos bin Said. He details the rapid development he says the sparsely populated country has experienced under Sultan Qaboos’ leadership, focusing on the time he spent there in 1994 and 1995.
“The country has transformed from a backwards, non-unified country to a modern, homogenous state with a high standard of living dominated by tolerance, growing democracy and a respect for its cultural heritage,” Nielsen says.
The author wants to remember Oman and its population and to inform the world of a country he says used fewer than 50 years to attain the modernization and development that Europe needed 500 years to accomplish.
“This is a modern Islamic country dominated by Ibadism, an ancient version of Islam dominated by tolerance – an example to the world that Islam in this version can avoid confrontation and conflict,” Nielsen says. “The book is about the different regions of Oman appealing to foreign travelers and people who are interested in the rapid development of a backward country into a modern one.”
