Designed to increase our understanding of the Middle East, this set of lectures by Eeamonn Gearson of Johns Hopkins University explores a 1,300 year window from the rise of the prophet Muhammad to the fall of the Ottoman Empire following World War I. This course comes from The Great Courses and consists of 36 lectures. We will watch 2 of the videotaped lectures each session and join in group discussions in an effort to increase our knowledge of this critically important area of the world.
