Mount Nebo - Jordan

From Mount Nebo (on a clear day) you can see Jerusalem. On the day we went it was hazy, so we had to make do with this sign telling us what we were missing out on. It was here where Moses viewed the promised land as promised from God, according to the Bible.

A History of JordanA History of Jordan by Philip Robins.

Philip Robins’ survey of Jordan’s political history begins in the early 1920s, continues through the years of the British Mandate, and traces events over the next half century to the present day. Throughout the period, the country’s fortunes were closely identified with its head of state, King Hussein, until his death in 1999.


The Making of Jordan: Tribes, Colonialism and the Modern State (Library of Modern Middle East Studies)The Making of Jordan: Tribes, Colonialism and the Modern State by Yoav Alon.

At the beginning of the 20th Century Jordan, like much of the Middle East, was a loose collection of tribes. By the time of its independence in 1946 it had the most firmly embedded state structures in the Arab world. Yoav Alon examines how the disparate clan networks of Jordan were integrated into the Hashemite monarchy, with the help of the British colonial administrators.
