Israel And Jordan In The Shadow Of War: Functional Ties And Futile Diplomacy In A Small Place

By Adam Garfinkle

Jordan and Israel have long maintained a discreet, often troubled, relationship born of necessity and common interests. This book sketches some of the historical background and then provides real insight into the efforts made from 1984-88 to work out an Israeli-Jordanian understanding as a step toward peace. The author concentrates on functional areas of cooperation but correctly notes that politics often gets in the way. A useful study with valuable documentation.
