The Emergence of the Modern Middle East: Part 2

by Professor Asher Susser

Overview

The Middle East today is at the heart of many global conflicts. But of all the clashes in the region, why has the Palestine-Israel conflict endured more than seven decades, seemingly without any resolution in sight?

Professor Asher Susser is a Senior Research Fellow at the Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies. In this course from Tel Aviv University, Susser describes the twists and turns in the Middle East of the 20th century. From the fall of the Ottoman Empire to the rise of Jewish and Arab nationalist movements, The Emergence of the Modern Middle East: Part 2 traces the roots of the Palestine-Israel conflict in all its complexity.

Favorite quote

The introduction of the secular heresy of nationalism, of collective self-worship, is the best found and least mentioned of the many grievances of the Middle East against the West.

- Bernard Lewis, historian
