Jordan has long been regarded as a pivotal country in the Middle East, one whose policy choices carry strong implications for regional stability. Jordan in Transition offers a cogent and compelling analysis of the country's domestic and international politics. Ryan argues that there have been four dramatic transitions in Jordan's recent past: ambitious economic restructuring; efforts toward political liberalization; realignments in foreign relations (culminating in the 1994 peace agreement with Israel); and the succession of King Abdullah II. Exploring these transitions, and how each in turn affects the others, he provides a major contribution to our understanding of Jordan.


From Abdullah to Hussein: The Emergence of Modern Jordan. Political Liberalization and Elections. Economic Adjustment and Political Stability. From War to Peace: Jordan's Changing Foreign Policy. From Hussein to Abdullah: The Succession. Jordan's Continuing Transition.
