Lecture 1: Perspectives on the Middle East and Asia
Lecturer: Bill Stewart
This introductory lecture will provide a broad-ranging discussion of the interrelationships and friction points that exist within the Muslim World, with its neighbors, and with other nations around the world. This intricate and confusing mosaic of connections and disconnections inevitably complicates any foreign policy initiatives. The talk will shed light on the current complexities as well as provide insights on how they have come about.
