Foreign Policy Research Institute A Nation Must Think Before it Acts Jordan and America: The Inside Story of an Enduring Friendship

Jordan and America: The Inside Story of an Enduring Friendship

About the Event

In this month's People, Politics, and Prose Ron Granieri will be joined by Bruce Riedel to discuss his new book, Jordan and America: An Enduring Friendship. Riedel will talk about the remarkable relationship between the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and the U.S., and how their leaders have navigated multiple crises in one of the most volatile regions in the world. Granieri and Riedel will discuss the challenges facing the U.S. in this critical part of the world.

People, Politics, and Prose with Ron Granieri features in-depth conversations with authors of recent books on international affairs and national security. Moderated by FPRI’s Ronald J. Granieri, each session will build on the book’s contents to discuss the author’s influences and motivations, relating everything to current events to elicit a broader understanding of the geographical, political, and historical context of our contemporary world.
