Book Description

This book, first published in 1961, covers the whole range of the Hashemite kingdom, its king, its government, the people, the land, industry, the armed forces and the rich history of the country. The aim of this book is to present a living picture of a live and virile people linked by language, blood and faith to the other Muslim lands, and in doing so present a snap-shot of the country in the middle of the twentieth century.
