Our Last Best Chance: The Pursuit of Peace in a Time of Peril by King Abdullah II of Jordan

From the book jacket: “King Abdullah II was schooled in America and at Sandhurst and heading for a life as a successful career soldier, when his father fell ill and he was unexpectedly named King of Jordan. Fiercely loyal to his country but also possessing an outsider’s perspective on the political difficulties of the region, King Abdullah has since spent every effort to better Jordan – improving its economy, education standards, and rights for women – and find security for his people and their neighbors. In this seminal work by a man at the very heart of the complex Middle East situation, King Abdullah puts forward what may be our best chance yet for Israeli-Palestinian Peace.”
