Kennedy—Engaging Middle Eastern Nationalism
Lecture no. 9 from the course: The U.S. and the Middle East: 1914 to 9/11
Taught by Professor Salim Yaqub | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses
This is an examination of President Kennedy's attempt to deemphasize Cold War themes in U.S. policy toward the Middle East. Paradoxically, the strategy initially improves America's Cold War position, but leaves a far less promising situation to Kennedy's successor.
