CourseBiscayne Bay Campus6M1/23-2/2710:30 AM12:00 PMThe Wars of the Middle East:  Israel: from Besieged State to Regional HegemonySince the fall of the Ottoman Empire at the close of World War I, the West’s impact on the Perso-Islamic world has been profoundly disturbing.  Convulsed by imperialism, nationalism, materialism, and Islamism, all funded by immense oil wealth, the Islamic peoples have struggled to adjust to modernity, a struggle that has often devolved into war, the most common of which has been the struggle between Israel and the other states of the region.  We will examine the modern history of the area through the lens of the Arab-Israel conflict, and how Israel transformed from a developing country, seemingly on the verge of total defeat, to unquestioned military dominance.  Jeffrey Greenhut$100$75
