Bahrain and Jordan: Unrest and Foreign Relations


Keven Buck and Tad J. McPherson (Editors)

Series: Global Political Studies
BISAC: POL011010

This book examines the political structure, economic, security and U.S. relations with the countries of Bahrain and Jordan. Protests that erupted in Bahrain following the uprising that overthrew Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on February 11, 2011, demonstrate that Shiite grievances over the distribution of power and economic opportunities were not satisfied by relatively limited efforts to include the Shiite majority in governance. Consequently, several issues in U.S.-Jordanian relations are likely to figure in decisions by Congress and the Administration on future aid to and cooperation with Jordan. These include the stability of the Jordanian regime, the role of Jordan in the Arab-Israeli peace process, the possibility of U.S.-Jordanian nuclear energy cooperation, and U.S.-Jordanian military and intelligence cooperation.
