This course will review the emergence of the modern Middle East from the fall of the Ottoman Empire, at the end of the First World War to the present. We will discuss the Ottoman legacy in the region and the Western imperial impact on the creation of the Arab state system. The course will review the rise and retreat of Arab nationalism, the problems of internal cohesion of the Arab states, issues of religion and state, and the evolution of Islamist politics. We will also focus on the evolution of the Arab-Israeli conflict and its impact on the region and will conclude with an in depth analysis of the “Arab Spring” by placing these contemporary revolutionary events in their historical context.

來自现代中东的兴起 - 第 I 部分的熱門評論
I really like the professor and his narration, quite engaging and interesting course. The only suggestion I have is to improve the quizzes with more analytical rather than fact-based questions.
An excellent introduction to the formation of what we know as the Middle East. This course offers great insight and context into this area, its peoples, cultures, economy, and politics.
Very interesting. Enlarged my understanding of how this region became what it is today and its current day events. Links events throughout modern history. Would definitely recommend!
A very clear, rigorous and ENJOYABLE presentation of a very complex subject. Definitely everyone interested in the roots of the modern Middle East troubles should take this primer.
A complete breakdown of the Middle Eastern States emergence from the Ottoman Empire's rule to the Mandates imposted by the European Powers post WW1.\n\nLooking forward to part 2.
Very informative course about The Emergence of the Modern Middle East in the 20th Century! Enjoyed it very much, kudos to Prof Susser for the clear and articulate teaching!
Very informative - a real eye-opener. The provided PDF materials are excellent and really help to follow the lectures. The many graphics significantly enhance the course.
Full of information, great analysis, suitably detailed. A great personal touch as well. This requires attention and thought as a good course should. Highly recommended.
The Course is definitely recommended to those with interest in the Middle East. The course itself was pretty short and the reading material provided wasn't accessible
Fantastic course! Professor Susser has a very engaging way of teaching history and the course materials (videos, course readings and quizzes) are very high quality
Great course with lots of information. I only wish that it was slightly longer and had time to go into some areas in more depth, but looking forward to part 2.
Professor Susser organized a very well done course on a topic with very complex regional dynamics. In addition, the notes for each module were excellent!
It was an incredible syllabus and i learned a lot. The teacher was great, contextualizing everything and explaining all the concepts of the middle east.
This course provided me exactly the level of detail and information I was hoping for regarding an understanding of the history of the middle east.
Very informative, well-paced and objective course. Even more beneficial as it is the sole comprehensive course on the subject in the internet.
Excellent course! Though sometimes I feel like the lectures can be redundant... But it's also good to really make sure the main points stick.
Clear, concise, objective. Asher Susser explains so much about the Middle East; helps make the present-day situation more understandable.
Excellent course especially for the uninitiated to understand the history of the Middle East region.\n\nEagerly waiting for part 2!
I gained a better historical understanding of the contemporary Middle East. What it was and how how it became what it is today.
Very useful and insightful course for anyone looking for the answers to the whys and roots of the conflicts in the Middle East.
