A Political History of Palestine

ALL1365-Z    Second 6 Weeks      Tuesday 10:30-11:50       Start Date 22-Oct
Zoom      Limit  25

This course will cover a short history of major political and military events in Palestine from 1350 BCE to the present. Our goal will be to take a dispassionate and objective view of the political evolution of this sacred but troubled land, so that we may gain a better understanding of why it has been so difficult to achieve a lasting peace among its residents. We will finish with a consideration of what the future is likely to hold.
