Area Studies-Middle East


Daily events in the Middle East support the conventional wisdom that religion and politics, tradition and modernism, and oil and water don't mix. Traditional Arab culture, the historical development of Islam, Judaism and Christianity, the impact of western industrial powers, and U.S. involvement will be studied as a backdrop to current issues.
