Randa Habib will be at the Frontline Club to discuss her new book Hussein and Abdullah: Inside the Jordanian Royal Family with Hosam El Sokkari, head of BBC Arabic.

With unprecedented access to the Royal Family, it was the Amman-based journalist who broke the story that King Hussein had chosen his son, Abdullah, to succeed him to the throne and not his brother Hassan, the designated Crown Prince.
Randa Habib will discuss the insight she gained into the late King Hussein’s rule during twenty-five years of unprecedented access as well as the new King’s campaign to position himself as peace broker in the Middle East.

With: Hosam El Sokkari, head of BBC Arabic
