Jordan is a young country, but the land it occupies is ancient - the Jordan River has for millennia been flowing through the veins of the world's three great religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam.
Publisher: I. B. Tauris
Jordan is a land of extraordinary contrasts and striking beauty; of rainbow-colored rocks, black basalt deserts and fantastical landscapes hewn out of time by geological rifts. Modern Jordan mirrors this confluence of cultures and peoples with Circassians, Caucasians, Arabians and Palestinians all melding in a rich multicultural brew. This is a lavishly illustrated book which provides an introduction to this Middle Eastern kingdom and its people, places and extraordinary landscape.
