Jordan exemplifies the third causal pattern encompassed by this book’s central theory of authoritarian statebuilding: that of geopolitical subsidization and tenuous survival. This chapter traces the historical processes and events that culminated in the domestic unrest of the mid-1950s, which nearly ended the rule of its Hashemite regime.
