Content

This unit explores the broad history of the Middle East from ancient times until the 20th century. It starts with an examination of how popular culture and in particular Hollywood films influence the way we view the region and its people. The unit will then explore the history of the Middle East and how this unique part of the world has generated political and religious clashes over the centuries. This will offer the basis for a much better understanding of how the region functions today. No prior study of the Middle East is required.
