Understanding the Middle East Today -- Barry Daniel
Foreign policy professor and nuclear arms negotiator Barry Daniel wants to help you understand, from a geopolitical perspective, what led to the Middle East being such a complicated, seemingly unsolvable problem.
Well discuss, among other things, the Sunni-Shiite split in Islam, the European and Soviet/Russian entries into the area, and the creation of Israel. We'll see how those factors shape the current Middle East.
Well try to explain why and how the U.S. got so embroiled in the region and speculate a little about some possible futures there. Barry expects a spirited discussion to follow.
Barry Daniel is a retired professor of foreign policy who has been an Army officer, a member of the U.S. delegation negotiating nuclear arms reduction with the Soviet Union and a student of terrorism. Educated at Eastern Ky. Univ., Colo. St. Univ. and the University of Denvers Graduate School of International Studies.
