Jordan has been at the crossroads of Middle East events since Biblical times. In contemporary times, the recent Persian Gulf crisis and the long-simmering Arab-Israeli conflict have thrust Jordan into a troublesome but crucial role. But despite its unstable setting, it has experienced remarkably stable leadership_since 1953, King Hussein has steered the country through the difficulties of internal strife, Middle East wars, and international pressure. This new historical dictionary provides in a convenient format a broad array of data and descriptive material on this crucial state. With the most comprehensive bibliography available on Jordan.

About the Author:

Peter Gubser (D.Phil., Oxford; MA, American University of Beirut; BA, Yale) is President, ANERA (American Near East Refugee Aid) and the author of numerous books and articles on Jordan and the Middle East, including Jordan: Crossroads of Middle Eastern Events and Politics and Change in Al-Karak, Jordan. His current position involves him deeply in social and economic development issues of the region as well as in the relations among the major participants in the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Review:

... a good research source for individuals studying or teaching about Jordan and the Arab world. (Arba)

... the dictionary's strength lies in its coverage of ancient history, Jordan's role in the Arab-Israeli conflict, and Jordanian social and political structures. (Journal Of Palestine Studies)
