The Jordanian-Palestinian Relationship: The Bankruptcy of the Confederal Idea

Front Cover
Bloomsbury Academic, Dec 31, 1998 - Business & Economics - 256 pages

Jordanian-Palestinian interaction is at the heart of the Middle East peace process. The future of any independent Palestinian state--together with the stability of the region--to a great extent depends on this relationship. Musa Braizat's book presents an astute assessment of the relations between Jordan and Palestine, their significance and possible future developments. It examines the influence of other inter-Arab relations this century and shows how the sometimes uneasy Jordanian-Palestinian partnership has been influenced by past experience of several modern Arab states. Braizat explores the origin of the confederal formula and questions its role as an appropriate framework for future co-operation between Jordan and an independent Palestine.
