This course examines the U.S. military and diplomatic involvement in the modern Middle East, beginning at the end of World War II, with involvement in Iran and Egypt early in the Cold War. Much of the class focuses on U.S. interventions in Lebanon, Afghanistan, and Iraq. Attention is paid to U.S. motives and goals and to the ways in which Middle Eastern actors deployed conventional and unconventional forces against U.S. forces.
