Abstract

The Jordanian Civil War, colloquially known as Black September, placed Jordan at the forefront of international affairs, for it emerged as a battleground for Cold War tensions and Arab-Israeli hostilities. My research analyzes the Jordanian nation that emerged and its unique position as a refuge to multiple identities, held together by the monarchy, foreign investments, and a domestic desire for a stable state.
