Abstract:

"Jordan is three-quarters desert, with only one major oasis (Al-Azraq) as the principal pivot for caravan routes from time immemorial. This divide between the desert and fertile lands has shaped the political history of Jordan, as nomadic Bedouin pastoralists have encroached on the settled fertile areas time and again, a source of conflict throughout its recorded history." "Jordan: A Timeless Land is a unique historical and pictorial journey, a comprehensive sweep through time and interrelated regional histories. A dazzling vision of a country that is at once common and unique spread across page after page of glorious photography: of peoples, places and extraordinary landscapes."--Jacket.
