Arab Monarchical States still remain in the contemporary world. This fact is contradictory to the familiar theory on monarchies that they would collapse as time went by. This paper tackles this puzzle, identifying Arab Monarchical States as variants of modern political regimes. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the regime-stabilizing mechanism of Jordan, considering seven issues that are crucial for regime maintenance. The analysis sets three levels for examination: domestic situations, Arab region situations, and international situations. The Jordanian regime uses several resources for coping with these issues, but these resources at the same time work as constraints on the regime. Moreover, the nature of these resources changes as the society changes. As for the conclusion, this paper implies the importance of taking these changes into consideration, which affects the Arab Monarchical States more than other regime types, because the Arab Monarchical States are influenced not only by domestic situations, but also by Arab regional situations and international situations.
