The United States’ need for oil, relationship with Israel, and worries about Iran’s nuclear program make the Middle East a critical area of U.S. involvement. In 2011, new developments began reshaping the U.S. role in the Middle East. In what is known as the Arab Spring, protests and revolts have challenged governments across the region. Long-time U.S. allies, including the governments of Egypt and Tunisia, were overthrown. A civil war rages in Syria and threatens to spill over borders. The long-term effects of these events remain to be seen, as does the U.S. relationship to evolving Middle East politics.
Student will analyze the mix of interests and values that have drawn the United States into the region and consider the principles behind the U.S. presence in the Middle East today. A framework of four distinct options for U.S. policy toward the Middle East helps students explore a range of alternatives and gain a deeper understanding of the values underlying contrasting policy recommendations.

    The book I downloaded is not complete and the page numbers are messed up. My teacher and classmates all have different page numbers. They also have sections of the book that are missing from mine.
