Yoav Gelber traces the relation between the stae of Israel and the Hashemite dynasty of Transjordan by focusing on the connection between the two regions from as early as 1921 when Abdullah first appeared on the scene, and by using Jewish sources as well as British records.

Table of Contents

MESA Bulletin - "Jewish-Transjordanian Relaions, 1921-1948, will remain the standard source for Hasshemite-Zionist realtions inthe interwar period."

Journal of Palestine Studies- " a useful reference for researchers who might learn something about how Zionist intelligence saw the Arab world and about what Amir Abdullah was telling Zionist agents and leaders at given moments…this book is a contribution to the field by virtue of its comprehensiveness"

British Journal of Middle Eastern Studies- " This is a valuable work of reference"

Middle East Journal - "The decided strength of this work is its attention to detail…Gelber"s efforts to present with clarity the material he has examined will surely be of value to other scholars working on this topic
