    Talal bin Abdullah (Arabic: طلال بن عبد الله ‎, Ṭalāl ibn ʿAbdullāh; 26 February – 7 July ) was King of Jordan from the assassination of his father, King Abdullah I, on 20 July , until he was forced to abdicate on 11 August According to Talal, he Father: Abdullah I of Jordan. King Abdullah II is a respectable, impressive, strong character. I initially purchased the book to better understand his philosophy on international relations. However, the book is more a focus on King Abdullah II himself, his background, and why he does what he does. The title is a /5(81).

    Transjordan, the East Bank, or the Transjordanian Highlands (Arabic: شرق الأردن ‎), is the part of the Southern Levant east of the Jordan River, mostly contained in present-day Jordan.. The region, known as Transjordan, was controlled by numerous powers throughout the early modern period, the region of Transjordan was included under the jurisdiction of Ottoman .   Abdullah twice presented to the Arab League a resolution that justified and dictated a plan in which to facilitate the abortion of the newly independent Syrian state by Transjordan, the move quickly drew condemnation from across the region as Transjordan’s three main rivals, Egypt, Syria and Saudi Arabia joined together to condemn the actions.

    Abdullah failed completely in his ambitious dream of building a greater Syrian union with himself as king, just as his father had failed before him. Further Reading on Abdullah ibn Husein. Two volumes by Abdullah are Memoirs of King Abdullah of Transjordan, edited by Philip P. Graves (trans. ), and My Memoirs Completed (trans. ). ANYONE interested in the Near East, even to the limited extent of having enjoyed T.E. Lawrence's "Revolt in the Desert," will relish the "Memoirs of King Abdullah of Transjordan.
