Frontiers of the State in the Late Ottoman Empire: Transjordan, 1850-1921

by: Eugene L. Rogan
Using new archival material from Ottoman, Arabic and European sources, Eugene Rogan documents the case of Transjordan to provide a theoretically informed account of how the Ottoman state restructured itself during the last decades of its empire. In so doing, he explores the idea of frontier as a geographical and cultural boundary and sheds light on the processes of state formation that led to the creation of the Middle East as it is today. The book concludes with an examination of the Ottoman legacy in the modern state of Jordan.

East of the Jordan: Territories and Sites of the Hebrew Scriptures

by: Burton MacDonald
This volume is a convenient tool for all those interested in the location of territories and sites attested in the Bible as "East of the Jordan" i.e. what is now the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. It presents the history of the identification of each biblical site and suggests the most likely location based on information provided by the biblical text, extra-biblical literary information, toponymic considerations and archaeology. The volume treats all territories and sites of Hebrew Scriptures in Transjordan from the "cities of the plains" (eg Soddom and Gomorrah), the Exodus itineraries, and the territories and sites of the Israelite tribes (Reuben, Gad, and half Manasseh), to Ammon, Moab, Edom, and Gilead.

Beyond the River: Ottoman Transjordan in Original Photographs

by: Raouf Sa'd Abujaber, Felicity Cobbing
During the 19th and early 20th century, the rugged, mountainous land through which the River Jordan flows, was a region of untouched beauty and deeply held tribal traditions. Beyond the River gathers over 200 black-and-white photographs of Transjordan from the collections of the Palestine Exploration Fund in London, taken during the dying days of the Ottoman Empire, through the First World War, and the establishment of the Hashemite Emirate of Jordan in 1921 from which the modern Kingdom evolved.

The Late Bronze Age and Early Iron Ages of Central Transjordan: The Baq'ah Valley Project, 1977-1981

by: Patrick E. McGovern

A critical transition period in the archaeology and history of Palestine—the Late Bronze Age and Early Iron Age—is described in detail from the perspective of a group of sites in the Baq'ah Valley. A major emphasis is on how scientific techniques, including magnetic location of undisturbed burial deposits and analytical reconstruction of very early industries, can be effectively integrated into an archaeological project. Contrary to traditional views, the evidence supports a relatively peaceful development within a single cultural tradition rather than the intrusion of a new people or segment of the existing population, by invasion, migration, or revolt.
