How have Middle East conflicts during the 20th Century affected current issues and problems in the 21st Century? This class will cover the history of Middle-East conflicts from 1914 to the early 1970s. Major events during this period include the breakup of the Ottoman Empire during World War I, the formation of the State of Israel following World War I, the Suez Crisis in the 1950s, the rise of Arab nationalism, the Six-Day war of the 1960s, and Yom Kippur war of 1973. We will discuss the U.S. involvement and influence on these events which relate to current Mid- East issues. Cost is $25 for Creative Retirement members. Register by 9/24.
