Topics in International Relations - U.S. Policy and Diplomacy in the Middle East

Daniel C. Kurtzer


Middle East historically has been of strategic importance to the US & American interest groups. This seminar will explore the process & content of US foreign policy & diplomacy in the Middle East since 1945. Through case studies from the Cold War through the Global War on Terrorism, we will look at enduring US interests & attitudes & examine the degree to which the US has been successful in implementing strategies to achieve its nat'l interests. Also examine domestic political environment in which Middle East policy & diplomacy operate, to understand the interplay among politics, policy & diplomacy.
