Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
The Making of Jordan: Tribes, Colonialism and the Modern State is absolutely fascinating, surprisingly accessible to non-academics, and is impressively well-researched. The language is precise, well-organized, and thorough. It is a multi-faceted, subtly nuanced, in-depth analysis of the tribes' integral role in state formation. The bibliography alone provides a wealth of previously overlooked historical sources in English, Arabic and Hebrew. This book is a must read for anyone interested in Jordan, its politics, people, society, or history.
