A informative course that gives you an idea on how the Middle East is what it is today.
This course continues with where part one ended and is full of historical facts and conclusions. Very interesting and a great course.
I enjoyed this course and found it to be very informative and relevant. Definitely recommended.
A FASCINATING COURSE WHICH WAS MOST ENGAGING THROUGHOUT. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COURSE. IT REALLY HELPS TO PUT INTO CONTEXT THE CONFLICT IN THE MIDDLE EAST THAT IS STILL VERY MUCH ONGOING.
