          Grade  Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  We  begin  by
          exploring the Bible's understanding of the
          development of earliest Israel and we then
          compare  these results  with those gleaned
          from  a  hundred  years  of archaeological
          investigation.   Finally,  we  examine the
          controversies  that  have arisen  from the
          clash  of these two approaches and move on
          to  attempt to harmonize the data and more
          fully  understand  the  nature  of ancient
          Israel  in  it land.  Students should have
          some   background  in  ancient  Near  East
          history   and   /or  archaeology.  Courses

          Archaeology).  Also listed as ARCH350.

JDST 410  Dynamics of the Arab-Israeli Conflict                   3 credits

          Grade  Method:  REG/P-F/AUD After  a brief
          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  Zionism will 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 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  the
          background  of great power intervention in
          the  Middle  East,  and  the  dynamics  of
          intra-Arab  politics, Political Islam, and
          oil. Cross-listed as POLI 485.
