Jordan : Conditions, Issues & U.S. Relations Hardback
Edited by Kathleen Ryers
Despite conflict on its borders, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan appears to remain a relatively stable and reliable partner for the United States in the Arab world.
Jordan's strategic importance to the United States may be increasing given the ongoing civil war in Syria, fighting in western and central Iraq, uncertainty over the trajectory of Palestinian and Egyptian politics, and ongoing global counter-terrorism operations.
In each of these arenas, U.S.-Jordanian military, intelligence, and diplomatic co-operation seeks to empower political moderates, reduce sectarian conflict, and eliminate terrorist threats.
This book provides an overview of Jordanian politics and current issues in U.S.-Jordanian relations.
It provides a brief discussion of Jordan's government and economy and of its co-operation with U.S. policy objectives in the Middle East, including the promotion of Arab-Israeli peace.
