Item description for State, Society, and Land in Jordan (Social, Economic and Political Studies of the Middle East and Asia) by Michael R. Fischbach, Paul Michael Garcia, John Perry Barlow, Rory V. O'connor, Alec Dorling, Kathryn Graham & Joel W. Grube...

Examines how state and society conceptualized land ownership in Jordan from the late Ottoman era through the 1950s, and how the resulting interaction between them shaped the socio-economic and political contours of modern Jordan. The book details Ottoman, British and Jordanian land and taxation policies and explains the varying degrees of co-operation with these exhibited by landowners. It notes the impact of the policies upon land tenure and upon popular conceptualizations of what "property" and even "Jordan" meant. It also studies the poltical consequences of Jordanian land policy for both Zionists and Palestinians.
