Munther J. HaddadinISBN: 0792375270;
The Jordan River waters are essential for the development and well being of the people of its basin. Plans for the development of its water resources were considered since the beginning of the twentieth century, and have long been central to dispute between riparian nations. This volume reviews the roots of conflict over the Jordan between Arabs and Jews and the development of that conflict over the past 150 years. It analyzes the positions of Arabs and Israelis and the role of the United States in promoting a settlement. The work then presents the development of a negotiated resolution of that part of the conflict related to Jordan and Israel through the Middle East Peace Process. This book approaches the Jordanian-Israeli water affairs in the Jordan River Basin with a wide interdisciplinary perspective. It unfolds the full history of the dispute and negotiation process, beginning in the 1950s and ending with the water accord in 1974.
