This study has the principal aim of emphasising the achievement of the Sultan Turki b. Said's attempts to regain the power in Oman after the death of his father in 1856. It describes in detail his attempts, and his period of government, with certain reference to the British presence and attitude towards the Sultan, which had for some time given him considerable assistance in settling his problems with his opponents inside the country. This study has also been extended to the period of Sultan Faisal b. Turki, concerning the Anglo-French rivalry on the issues of the Omani dhows flying the French colours. The study has consists of six chapters, the introduction and the conclusion. Chapter 1 concentrates on the discussion of the situation in Oman that followed the death of Sd. Said b. Sultan, and the reign of the Sd. Thuwaini 1856-1868, with reference to the role of Sd. Turki B. Said in this period. It also describes the troubles between Muscat and Zanzibar that were settled by Lord Canning's Arbitration in April, 1861. The second chapter describes the Turki-Azzan dispute during the time of Sd. Azzan b. Qais, 1868-1871, including the British attitude towards the dispute, and the India Government action through their Representatives in Muscat and the Persian Gulf. The subject of the third chapter is a description of Sd. Turki B. Said as one of the paramount characters in the modern history of Oman, and it examines the manner in which the Sultan regained the throne, and the British aims and policy towards his Government. The discussion in the Fourth chapter is concerning the Sultan's argument with his opponents, like Sd. Abdul Aziz, Ibrahim b. Qais, and Shaikh Salih b. Ali al-Harthi, and the Sultan's efforts to emphasise his power in the country. Chapter 5 concentrates on the Slave Trade, with reference to the Sultan of Muscat's co-operation with the British to suppress the traffic.
