This course examines the modern Middle East as social, economic and political history, in four phases.

The first looks at the attempts of the Ottoman Empire to meet the European economic, political and military challenge from Bonaparte's invasion of Egypt through World War I.

The second surveys the rise of nationalism in the Arab world, Turkey, Iran and Israel/ Palestine in the inter-war period, along with decolonization and state-led development attempts.

The third considers the impact on the region of the Cold War, and the reworking of regional struggles such as the Arab-Israeli conflict in the terms of the competition between the United States and the Soviet Union. The competing economic models of socialism and capitalism as adopted in the region are assessed.

The fourth looks at the Middle East in the post-1989 era of "Dual Containment" (of Iraq and Iran) and the Bush administration's wars.
