East Bank/West Bank: Jordan and the Prospects for Peace (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


This book tells how the Hashemite kings came to role the desert tract of the East Bank after World War I, how Palestinians became the majority in today's population, and a rapidly changing society's difficult history since 1948. It shows Jordan's position as crossroads, buffer state and middle way in the turbulence in the Middle East; it assesses the tensions in Jordan's society, the pressures on its political system, the army's role, and the problems and prospects for its economy. Most important, the author offers a dispassionate view of the Palestine question and the West Banks future, and weighs the options both for Jordan and for United States policy on that intractable issue. Throughout its pages, he elegantly and clearly demonstrates the U.S. stake in Jordan's continued well-being and prudent policies.
