HST 242 - Europe & the M-E (1798-1956)
This course provides students with an overview of European-Middle Eastern relations during the 19th and early 20th centuries.

The period reveals both Europe and the Middle East evolving rapidly, but not always in tandem.Examples might include the history of Egypt from Napoleon’s invasion in 1798 to the 1952 officer’s revolution led by Nasser; the history of the Ottoman Empire from the Tanzimat to its decline; British, French, German and Russian interests in the Middle East; the impact of the two World Wars, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk and the creation of modern Turkey and the rise of the Arab state system.
