King Abdullah II of Jordan and The Pursuit of Peace in a Time of Peril

Our Last Best Chance: The Pursuit of Peace in a Time of Peril In a time of great change and violence in the North Africa and the Middle East, King Abdullah II's book The Pursuit of Peace in a Time of Peril will be interest to people all over the world.

On today's broadcast of the Daily Show, the Jordanian ambassador to the United Nations, Prince Zeid Ra'ad, speaks with Jon Stewart about the book.  Given the current state of affairs in the region, The King couldn't come to The Daily Show.  Understandable.

Hmm,  something that I don't think they bring up is the fact that there are a TON of books by US politicians.  But there are far fewer books promoted to an American audience that are written by leaders of Middle Eastern countries.  It seems to me that this perspective  is one that we should be reading about.
