The Modern Middle East: History, Religion, Turmoil and Hope
April 8, 2013 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Lecture 1 : Historic Overview: How Did We Get Here
The creation of the modern Middle East in the aftermath of WWI planted many of the seeds of today’s issues. What are these issues and are there other underlying factors? What are the main causes of the Arab-Israeli Conflict? Why has there been a “deficit of democracy” and a lack of diversified economic development in much of the Islamic Middle East?
Professor and historian Dr. Art Pitz presents a balanced, in-depth discussion of the tumultuous situation today in the Middle East with the four part series, The Modern Middle East: History, Religion, Turmoil and Hope at Musser Public Library.
This lecture series is sponsored by the Jewish Federation of the Quad Cities. These presentations are free and open the public. No registration is required.
