Randa Habib 26 January 2010
Randa Habib
Reporting the Middle East

Randa Habib has spent the last 25 years covering war and politics in the Middle East. During this time she has had to deal with threats to her own life - she was once held at gunpoint in Iraq. But it is through dedicated coverage of the Royal Family of Jordan that she has made her most profound impact on current affairs. Her new book gives the inside story of the fortunes of King Hussein, and his son and successor King Abdullah. She tells Jane how she came to forge such an important working relationship with this unique family.

'Hussein and Abdullah: Inside the Jordanian Royal Family', by Randa Habib, is published by Saqi Books, ISBN: 978-0863566844
