This volume, intended for both academic and general readers, offers an overview of the history, politics and economics of this fascinating country and its role in a region disfigured by the Arab-Israeli conflict. The main focus of the book is on King Hussein's reign, his internal struggle with the Palestinians, his quest to modernise his kingdom and his pursuit of an agenda for peace inclusive of Israel and Iraq. The authors also consider the prospects for the 'new Jordan' under King Abdullah II."--Jacket." ;
