This book is an expanded version of Malik Mufti's Harvard dissertation in international relations. The Hashemites were the foremost exponents of early royal unionism . It is the first comprehensive contribution to the study of pan-Arab nationalism as a foreign-policy instrument for Arab rulers in the post-World War II era. Mufti believes that the failure of attempts at unity among Arab states did not result solely from the fact that Arab politicians were and still are insincere in their pan-Arab pronouncements. for achieving the sovereignty that lies at the heart of their dynastic ambitions.

This well-conceived book brings a fresh interpretation to the rather tired story of Iraqi and Syrian political maneuvering in the heyday of Arab nationalism. Making careful use of sources rarely consulted by Western scholars, Mufti sensibly distinguishes the major projects of Arab union, showing that Hashemite dynastic unionism had little in common with what he calls the "defensive unionism" of the 1950s and 1960s.

The military wings in Syria and Iraq opposed the creation of a pan-Arab state, whereas al-Shufi and al-Sadi supported it. Aflaq officially supported it, but privately opposed it because he was afraid al-Sadi would challenge his position as secretary-general of the National Command of the Ba'ath Party, the leader of the international Ba'athist movement. Both Syria and Iraq were under Ba'athist rule in 1963. ISBN 978-0-86356-044-6. Cornell University Press. ISBN 978-0-8014-3168-5.

Pan-Arab unionism ignited passions and dominated politics in the Middle East throughout the 1950s and 1960s and has continued to reassert itself periodically. In this elegantly written study, Malik Mufti investigates the persistence and the failure of pan-Arab initiatives, examining their significance in the political development of Syria and Iraq.
