Summary
    An Introductory History of the United States in the Middle East situates American action in the Middle East within the context of American history and foreign policy. Students explore the culture, social issues, and politics of the United States in order to better understand the motivations behind American involvement in the Middle East.

    Organized into 10 chapters, the book progresses chronologically, highlighting relations between the United States and the Middle East from the turn of the century to the present. Students learn how American ideas of manifest destiny and empire led to consistent intervention in the Middle East, especially after World War II. Dedicated chapters articulate the goals and motivations of the U.S. in the Middle East during early oil exploration, the World Wars, the Cold War, the Iranian Revolution, the oil crises of the 1970s, the Iran-Iraq War, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, and the modern war on terrorism.

    An Introductory History of the United States in the Middle East is an ideal resource for courses in American foreign policy and history.

    Caitlin Carenen is a professor of history at Eastern Connecticut State University, where she teaches courses on foreign policy, American religious history, the Arab-Israeli conflict, and the history of the United States in the Middle East. She holds a Ph.D. from Emory University. Dr. Carenen’s areas of expertise include the relationship between American religious history and foreign policy.
