To a large extent the history of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has been shaped by the interaction between Jordan and Palestine and between Jordanians and Palestinians. This book, first published in 1994, discusses this relationship during one of its most critical phases, through the prism of the biography of one of the main actors in this saga, a Prime Minister in the 1960s and early 70s, Wasf al-Tall.
