The Jordanian–Israeli–Palestinian Triangle

Edited by Joseph Ginat and Onn Winckler

Joseph Ginat, a cultural-political anthropologist, was Vice President of International Relations and Research at Netanya Academic College. He was the author of Blood Revenge: Family Honor, Mediation, and Outcasting, and editor of Sussex Studies in Peace Politics in the Middle East, as well as numerous contributions to social anthropology in the field of Mormon studies, and Arab culture. Onn Winckler is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Middle Eastern History and the Head of the Multi-Disciplinary Studies at the University of Haifa. He is the author of Demographic Developments and Population Policies in Ba’thist Syria, and co-editor of Modern Syria, as well as the author of a book on Jordanian demographic developments.


A distinguished group of Middle East experts highlight the options for cooperation in the Triangle. The book deals with the recent history of the peace agreements between the Triangle parties in socioeconomic, cultural, political and psychological perspectives. The texts are wide-ranging and represent the most recent political ideas with respect to promoting the triangular “partnership”.

International relations systems analysis sheds light on the tripolar system: Jordan is perceived as the natural balancer and pivot, since it has maintained close relations with the Palestinians, and simultaneously with the Zionist movement (from the 1920s onwards). The Palestinians have yet to benefit from playing the game of triangular politics, but the US is perceived as pushing for this goal, notwithstanding the objectives of the Likud party.

“Peace is a very long process. It entails not only shaking hands with a former opponent, but engaging his mind and heart as well … And it is in this spirit that I warmly recommend this book.” From the Foreword by Prince El Hassan of Jordan
