Really enjoyed this lecture series on the history of the United States and the Middle East. The timeframe of the study begins with the advent of the First World War and ends with the tragic events of 9/11. It is an excellent primer on the situation in the Middle East from a historical perspective, especially as it relates to U.S. policy there; and reminds the student that American policy has not always been consistent in that part of the world. It also highlights lesser know conflicts and challenges in the Middle East, which permeate down through to today, such as the Egyptian military adventures in Yemen. I recommend this lecture for anyone wishing to gain a rudimentary grasp of this issue, though there are many other books I would recommend to dig in on particular sub-topics covered in this series.
