The Struggle for Sovereignty: Relations Between Great Britain and Jordan, 1946-1951. The Struggle for Sovereignty: Relations Between Great Britain and Jordan, 1946-1951. Pundik takes issue with the idea that Britain colluded with Israel and Jordan to ensure that the West Bank would be taken by King Abdallah ibn Hussein in 1948. Jordan's early history as an independent state is coming under increasing scholarly scrutiny, thanks to the availability of the British archival records. According to Pundik, it was more a case of Abdallah pushing forward and the British not resisting.

This explains the great number of French words in English. Though Wales was conquered by England, the Welsh continued to struggle for their independence

This explains the great number of French words in English. The monarchy which was established by William and his successors was, in general, more effective. Though Wales was conquered by England, the Welsh continued to struggle for their independence. At the beginning of the 15th century there was a great rising, but the situation was seriously changed when in 1485 the English throne passed to Henry VII of the Welsh House of Tudor. In 1536 and 1542 Henry VIII rought Wales under the English parliament through special Acts of the 16th century Wales has been governed from London.

This study explores the emergence of Jordan as an independent state in 1946 and its subsequent fortunes through to 1951. Pundik provides a case-history of Britain as an imperial and colonial power on the wane and analyzes the emerging pattern of international relations. He goes on to examine the politics of Jordan as an exercise in effective management of a state by skilled politicians, most importantly King Abdullah who guided his country through the difficult years of 1945-51, demonstrating a capacity for sophisticated decision-making and manipulation of power unexpected by a patronizing - and perhaps arrogant - British Government. As such, Pundik aims to offer us a basis on which to further reflect about the culture of British foreign-policy makers who, in that period, mistakenly believed that "little countries" in the Middle East served no better purpose than to become pawns in a larger, long-term game of a global post-war settlement to be managed by the "great powers".
