Gary Sick, Columbia University, U.S.


hosted by Professor John L. Harper




SEE ATTACHED LECTURE SCHEDULE AND BIBLIOGRAPHY

This series of lectures/mini-course will look at the evolution of U.S. political, economic and military presence in the Persian Gulf from the Second World War to the present. It will examine the range of U.S. security strategies employed over that time, from the barely visible U.S. presence in the earliest days to the omnipresent U.S. influence today. The object of this series of lectures is to put in context U.S. foreign policy decision making in the Persian Gulf over a particularly tumultuous period, and to engage in a dialogue on the subject with SAIS students and faculty.
