This course will look at the political, social and contemporary history of what former National Security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski called "the Arc of Crisis" — Irag, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Their crisis was initially a Cold War phenomenon, but with the rise of radical political Islam, the conflicts have been pitched anew with a different ideological struggle. This course will look at the literature on these states, but also their relations with the U.S. and with each other.
