Course Details


Exploration of the international politics of the Middle East, tracing the development of Western interests in the region. Instead of exploring the region from the perspective of the West, however, the course will take seriously the foreign policy histories and goals of the states of the Middle East, exploring regional rivalries, energy politics, the rise and fall of pan-Arab nationalism, the so-called "War on Terror", and the enduring significance of the Arab-Israeli conflict for regional politics.
