Area Handbook for the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. Second Edition.
Nyrop, Richard F.; And Others
This volume on Jordan is one of a series of handbooks prepared by the Foreign Area Studies (FAS) of the American University for use by military and other personnel who need a convenient compilation of basic facts about the social, economic, political, and military institutions and practices of various countries. The present volume is the first revision of a study prepared in 1968 and published in 1969. This revision retains some segments of the 1968 study but is basically a new work, with particular attention to the events of the 1969-1973 period. The emphasis is on objective description of the nation's present society and the kinds of possible or probable changes that might be expected in the future. The book is organized into four sections--the social, political, economic, and national security aspects of Jordan. An extensive bibliography and a short glossary are included. (Author/ND)
