Product description


"A vivid, varied and revealing portrait of a country often ignored by Western media. All of the Arab world's pressures are here: unemployed youth, religious extremists, Syrian refugees, and a restive population competing to shape the future of Jordan." -- Deborah Amos, international correspondent for NPR News

"An exquisite mosaic of personal lives, social commentary, political insight, and historical context. Sweis has brought Jordan to life with deep sensitivity and a world-class journalist's penchant for nuance. The result is a true masterpiece of story-telling." -- Wendy Pearlman, author of We Crossed a Bridge and It Trembled: Voices from Syria

"With the Arab world in turmoil, the testimonies of ordinary men and women are rarely heard. Sweis has given a powerful voice to those people who really matter. This beautifully written book should be read by everyone who cares about the future of human society."-- Fabian Hamilton MP

"In a sea of books on the Middle East, Voices of Jordan is a rare gem. Sweis builds on a formidable reputation as one of the best international reporters in the Middle East, with the sharpest eye for detail and an instinct for the human stories that really count." -- Tim Sebastian, television journalist

"To understand a society as rich, complex and important as Jordan's means understanding its people. This enlightening book allows a range of Jordanian voices to express themselves clearly, so that we can truly hear them."-- Sir Ciarán Devane, Chief Executive of the British Council
