9780141048796: Our Last Best Chance: The Pursuit of Peace in a Time of Peril

HRH King Abdullah was schooled in America and at Sandhurst and was heading for a life as a career soldier, when his father fell ill and he unexpectedly inherited the throne of Jordan. Fiercely loyal to his country but possessing an outsider's perspective on the political difficulties of the region, King Abdullah has since spent every effort to better Jordan - improving their economy, education and rights for women - and find security for his people and their neighbours. In this seminal work, he puts forward what may be our best chance yet for the most important issue in the region - Israeli-Palestinian peace.

Review:

A book that avowedly mixes the personal with the political ( Spectator)

Abdullah's quest for peace with Israel deserves praise as diligent and honourable ( Independent)

Abdullah's voice is reasoned and often humorous, didactic rather than dictatorial ... he is a spokesman for his country ( Walll Street Journal)

About the Author:

His Majesty King Abdullah II , the eldest son of King Hussein and forty-third generation direct descendant of the Prophet Muhammad, became King of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in 1999. Before that, he served as Major General and Commander of Special Forces in the Jordanian army. He is married to Queen Rania, with whom he has four children. He lives in Amman, Jordan.
