The Political Legacy of King Hussein

By Alexander Bligh

This book - now in paperback - uncovers the true force behind most of the political processes in the Middle East for half a century. Through constant confrontations and negotiations with Israel and the Palestinians, under the watchful eye of the United States, King Hussein managed to create a new Middle Eastern nation-state - the Jordanian country and its people. The focus of the book is Hussein's deep concern for the future of the last Hashemite monarchy, together with his own set of personal and ideological convictions, as they impacted on many of his strategic decisions and their contribution to the formation of present-day Jordan.
