NS3310 Middle Eastern History to 1918

This course surveys the history of the Middle East from the founding of the Ottoman Empire through the end of the First World War. Also included in this period is the history of the Safavid and Qajar dynasties that ruled Iran and maintained rivalry with the Ottomans. Given the nature of Egypt's special status within the Ottoman Empire as of the 19th century, Egypt will be studied independently within this course. Prerequisites: None.
