From Abdullah to Hussein: Jordan in Transition
Oxford University Press, 17 лют. 1994 р. - 272 стор.
This book examines the most turbulent period in the history of Jordan's ruling house, the six years following the assassination of the kingdom's founder, Abdullah (1951-1957). Those years witnessed the country's lone episode of weak monarchy, when the king--the novice Hussein or his ill-starred father, Talal--was not the preeminent political actor in the land. Rather, it was during that time at the regime was left in the hands of a mix of Palestinian, Transjordanian, and Circassian royalists who had never before wielded executive authority inside the kingdom. Based on exclusive interviews and newly released archival resources, this book traces the only two royal successions in Jordanian history: the eleven-month reign of the little-known Talal, and the early years of King Hussein.

Loyalty to the monarchy was the only guarantee of their status; their vested interest in the survival and prosperity of Hashemite Jordan was almost as great as that of the Hashemites themselves.
