Understanding the Challenge in the Middle East

The war on terrorism, the situation with Iraq, tension between Israel and Palestine… Each day, the politics of the Middle East become increasingly complicated. To explain these developments, the media—including NPR and MSNBC— repeatedly turned to Dr. Shibley Telhami. Dr. Telhami, a professor of government and politics at the University of Maryland and senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, is known for presenting a balanced picture of the issues behind the conflicts rocking the Middle East. The University Lectures is proud to present this much sought-after expert on the Arab-Israeli conflict, international relations and U.S. policy in the Middle East.
