Collusion Across the Jordan: King Abdullah, the Zionist Movement and the Partition of Palestine

Front Cover
Clarendon, 1988 - Arab-Israeli conflict - 676 pages
This book is an account of the highly secret relationship between Abdullah, the Hashemite ruler of Jordan, and the Zionist movement. Spanning three decades, from the appointment of Abdullah as Emir in 1921 to his assassination in 1951, this work focuses on the clandestine diplomacy and the political and military processes which determined the fate of Palestine between 1947 and 1950, and which left the Palestinian Arabs without a homeland.
