HIS 297G - Topic: Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran

Satisfies 3 credits toward Middle Eastern Studies Minor. New Core: Fulfills 3 credits in Area of Knowledge III.

Course Description: In this course, the modern histories of Afghanistan, Iran and Iraq - three countries that share ethnicity, religion, and history - will be examined. The political history of the three states is preceded by a review of their ethnic and religious make-up. These states have played a pivotal role in the contemporary world Islamic upheaval and the current international terrorism. As a result, two of the three have already been occupied by US forces, and the third, Iran might follow soon. An examination of the American aims and goals in these three countries and the Middle East-Central Asia-Caucasus region as a whole will conclude the course.
