Jordan and the Palestine Question Ithaca Press
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Jordan is unique in its political, geographic, and demographic complexion located at the heart of a turbulent Middle East. With limited natural resources at its disposal, the country is exceptionally dependent on good foreign relations and foreign aid. This situation makes a fascinating subject for a case study of the relationship between foreign and domestic politics in the Arab world a singularly under-researched and neglected subject. With foreign policy so high on the political agenda, Jordan has become a key participant in the Palestinian imbroglio, which has been played out both on the international stage and closer to home, within Jordan's mainly Palestinian population. Dr Sami Al-Khazendar examines the critical years of the crisis leading up to the Palestinian uprising (intifada) and beyond, a period which witnessed many significant events and developments in the Middle East, including Camp David, Israel's invasion of the Lebanon, the expulsion of the PLO from Lebanon, the Reagan Plan, the Fez Arab Peace Initiative, the PLO Jordan Agreement and the dispute which ensued (1986 1988). He also investigates the intifada and its effects, the Jordanian decision to disengage from the West Bank, the PLO s recognition of the Jewish state and UN Resolution 242. In doing so, he assesses the impact of these events and developments on relations between the government and its internal opposition. Drawing on personal interviews with senior figures as much as on books and newspapers of the period, the author explores the complex interaction between King Hussein s government and these dominant and opposing ideological forces. Ultimately, he questions the effect of this opposition on key government policies.

A little over 200,000 votes in Mexico's 2006 presidential election determined whether or not the United States might soon share a border with a potentially communist country. A closer look reveals Mexico was nearly another domino in a rash of leftism that is sweeping through Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). In fact, there are as many leftist countries in the LAC region today as there were in Eastern Europe at the height of the Cold War. This research will determine why leftism is on the rise and whether US national security is being threatened. The causes are a combination of extreme inequality with regards to income per capita, an increased awareness among the populace as to its unequal situation, a poor display of US foreign policy, and an increase in education levels throughout the region. In short, Latin Americans are smarter, poorer, and angrier with the United States for its inattentiveness since the end of the Cold War. The Bush administration's association of democracies with US national security is shown to be questionable. Hugo Chavez and Evo Morales were both democratically elected, and their associations with known terror organizations and rogue states decrease US security. In any case, most new leftist governments in Latin America are not true leftists. They are called leftist, but their external economic policies clearly resemble capitalism. Ironically, the effect on US national security depends upon its own future actions. Based on these findings, three policy proposals are recommended. First, the United States needs to pioneer fairer trade agreements. Second, the United States needs to increase its foreign aid, with earmarks for economic investments. Third, the United States needs to work harder at being a good neighbor. These three steps should pull the region together and thereby increase the entire hemisphere's security.
