In 2011, it seemed that there was to be a democratic wave in the Middle East, with popular movements spreading across the region. Instead, we have witnessed the most violent period in the region’s history since the end of World War I. In this class, the presenter will attempt to explain why.

Howard Eissenstat is an associate professor of Middle East History at St. Lawrence University. He has written on an array of topics relating to the recent history of the Middle East.
