February 6 – April 16, 2008
This course will focus on the political, cultural, religious and ideological disconnect between East and West that have produced the present upheaval sweeping the region. And how past Western policies have not only failed to bridge but widened the gap between East and West. Among the topics this course will focus on include: The long-term effect of the neoconservative policies, national mindset and polity, crisis of leadership and restive public, the desire for and the fear of change, the repercussion of East West conflicting interests, the culture of violence and sanctification of death and the illusive war on terrorism.
