          Grade  Method: REG/P-F/AUD  After a survey
          of  Arab-Jewish  relations in  the time of
          Mohammed,  and the impact of the Crusades,
          this  course will focus on the development
          of  the  Arab-Israeli  conflict  from  its
          beginnings  in  the period  when Palestine
          was controlled by the Ottoman Empire.  The
          growth of Arab Nationalism and Zionismwill
          be   compared,  as  will  the  conflicting
          promises  made  by  the  British  to  both
          Zionists   and  Arab  Nationalists  during
          World War I. Next a review will be made of
          the  British  rule  over  both  Arabs  and
          Zionists during the Palestine Mandate. The
          second half of the course will examine the
          Arab-  Israeli  wars since  1948, the Camp
          David  and  Oslo peace  processes, and the
          outbreak  of  the  Al-Aksa  Intifadah. The
          conflict    will   be   analyzed   against
          thebackground  of great power intervention
          in  the  Middle East, and  the dynamics of
          intra-Arab  politics, Poltical  Islam, and
          oil. Also listed a POLI 489B.
