REVIEWS

"Should be required reading for every oilman, engineer, or businessman who has the least hope of succeeding in the Arab world."

–Chet Nagle, author of Iran Covenant

"Part memoir, part case-study, Oman Emerges is an absorbing account of how a little-known but strategic Arab country began transforming itself from ancient kingdom into a modern petropower as told through the experiences of an American advisor to the Sultan during the oil crises of the 70s and 80s."

"A burr under the oil industry's saddle, James Critchfield pressed for more judicious development of the sultanate's two most valuable resources oil and water even as competing constituencies insisted on quick fixes."

–Anna Rubino, author of Queen of the Oil Club: The Intrepid Wanda Jablonski and the Power of Information
