Few other regions of the world have provoked
more interest and controversy than the Middle East. This module will provide
you with an introductory overview of the historical, political, economic, and
strategic factors that shape the modern Middle East, examining key issues in
the politics and society of the region from the Prophet to the end of the
eighteenth century. It is designated to highlight the multi-faceted nature of
Middle Eastern polities and to provide a continuity/change perspective on
themes of regional unity versus political fragmentation. It also aims at
providing you with the concepts and tools necessary to develop an analytical
approach to understanding the Middle East.
