(p.25) 2 Dhufari Politics, Society, and Economy
Monsoon Revolution

Abdel Razzaq Takriti

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides an overview of the political, social, and economic history of Dhufar, beginning with its annexation by Muscat in the 19th century and ending with the rise of the Dhufar revolution in the 1960s. It examines the nature of political structures in that territory; discusses the various modes of social organisation prevailing within its boundaries; and offers an overview of its economy and patterns of production. Based on this information, the chapter lays the foundation for analytically understanding the social context which gave rise to a vibrant revolutionary movement. It moreover gives a sense of the longstanding anti-statist tradition prevailing in Dhufar at the time.

Keywords:   dhufari history, anti-statist societies, omani economic history, herding in Oman, southern Omani tribes, geography of Dhufar, Sultan Said bin Taimur, anglo-Ottoman relations in the Gulf, Fadhl bin Alawi, annexation of Dhufar
