20th Century Origins of the Middle East Conflict
The dissolution of the Ottoman Empire (1918) and the Iranian Revolution (1979) changed the geopolitical landscape of the Middle East. We’ll examine how these events have destabilized the region and led to the rise of the Islamic State (ISIS). The class draws from four texts, which are helpful--though not required--reading: War that Ended Peace (M. McMillan); Balfour Declaration (J. Schneer): Lawrence in Arabia (S. Anderson); and Myth of the Great Satan (A. Milani). Gourdji has taught on the Ottoman Empire and Iranian history and has given a Distinguished Lecture on the Iranian Revolution. NO CLASS ON NOVEMBER 20.
