Patrick Shrier of Military History US says that: “This course was very useful in getting a grasp on the very complex situation in the modern Middle East. The current geo-strategic situation in the region is very much affected by the legacy of how the modern map was drawn. Because the current map was drawn with no regard to tribal, religious, or ethnic geography it has led to constant tension both within and among the nations of the region.
If I had taken this course prior to my service in the region, it would have helped me by giving me a greater appreciation of the complexities of the modern Middle East, than I previously had from news and opinion articles. This course would have informed my answers and allowed me to more adequately express my understanding of the tensions within the region without being seen a taking sides and so made gaining the cooperation of the local population easier than it was.“
