Markarian, Zohrab. King and Country. London: Hutchinson Benham, 1986.

King and Country celebrates pictorially the fiftieth birthday of His Majesty King Hussein, ruler of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. Since 1953, when at the age of eighteen he formally ascended to the throne, his life has been dedicated to his country, and this book shows, through the lens of the photographer, how great are his achievements. During his reign Jordan has developed to an unprecedented degree, and her progress at home and her stature abroad are due to the King himself, whose wisdom and energy have made Jordan what it is today.
