HIME 7031 - Colonialism and Nation-Building in the Arab World

Debate on the effects of European colonial rule has been revived in the decade since the United States occupied Iraq. We W engage the debate by studying the effect of foreign rule on one region, the Arab world: French and British colonization of Algeria and Egypt in the long 19th-century; the League of Nations’ mandates in Syria and Iraq after World War I; and finally Americans’ effort to rebuild the Iraqi state since 2003. Prerequisite: One prior course on colonialism or on Arab history
