This course examines the main political forces and dynamics at work in the modern Middle East and within each Middle Eastern country. Beginning with the formation of the modern state system in the region, the course examines the major historical and contemporary developments that continue to shape the region’s politics. The course is divided into three broad sections, beginning with the examination of approaches to the study of the Middle East and the broader historical forces at work in shaping the Middle East; a survey of Middle Eastern political history since the collapse of the Ottoman empire following the end of World War I; and an in-depth examination of contemporary politics in each of the countries of the region.
