Description

When the young Hussein became the King of Jordan in 1953 he represented the socially conservative, pre-Western Jordanian state, and seemed a frail reed against the rising forces of pan-Arab radicalism. Yet Hussein and the Jordanian monarchy have not only endured, they have thrived, and continue to play a vital role in Middle Eastern politics. Uriel Dann sheds new light on the political history of the formative years of the Jordanian state, and uncovers the sources of its durability.show more
