One of King Hussein's closest advisors shares a remarkable insider's account of modern Middle East history.
Dr. Jamal Nasir advised the King of Jordan through most of the last fifty years of the twentieth century. Here he shares a remarkable personal insight on the way events unfolded in Jordan and Palestine over that period.
This fascinating personal account follows Nasir from a young Palestinian refugee, through to a career at the bar in London, and on to a role as chief legal advisor to King Hussein, whom he served for most of the last fifty years of the twentieth century. Among other notable events, Nasir was part of the Palestinian delegation that made representation to the UN following the 1967 war. He went on to serve as Minister of Foreign Affairs and Minister of Justice.
Intimately acquainted with the workings of government in the region, Nasir here reveals previously unpublished accounts of key moments behind the scenes in modern Middle East history.
