Studies two key institutions, the law and the military, and uses them to create an original analysis of the development of Jordanian national identity in the postcolonial period. Massad sifts such evidence as images produced by state tourist agencies aimed at attracting Western visitors, the changing and precarious position of women in the newly constructed national space, and such practices as soccer games, music, shifting dialects, food, and clothes.
