Short Course Description

This course is an introduction to the history and politics of weapons of mass destruction (?WMD?) in the Middle East, with a focus on nuclear energy and nuclear weapons. This course is not intended to examine nuclear strategy or theory, but it may touch on those issues as they relate to the various cases in the Middle East. Instead, this course will focus on the existing empirical scholarly literature on these issues with an emphasis on analyzing how historical context (change and continuity in time and place) has influenced WMD developments in various countries of the region.
