Industry Reviews

Brand makes a significant contribution to the study of both international relations and Middle Eastern politics. Her examination of the efforts of the Jordanian regime to ensure its financial solvency through judicious foreign alignments not only challenges the traditional conception of security that underlies conventional balance of power theory, it also illuminates previously murky episodes in the history of inter-Arab relations. The argument is clever, provocative, and enlightening.
