Lecture Hours: 3
Lab Hours: 0
Credit Hours: 3

Drawing from theories on revolutions, the class will examine 5-7 revolutions of the 20th century and track a Middle East revolution in the making. Each cadet will write a paper on another 20th century revolution and draw comparisons with the American Revolutionary War or American Civil War. Another paper will focus on the leader of a successful or failed revolution and compare him with a figure from American history or a fictional character from American culture. A final paper will assess prospects for success of a Middle-Eastern Revolution.
