This paper is a 9 page research paper. The research paper must make use of a minimum of two primary sources and consult at least eight secondary sources. All credible sources. Chicago Manual of Style citation method.
This is all about the last three centuries of Middle East history. Pick one of the 5 questions below, and turn the question into a research paper. The paper will not simply just answer one of the questions, you need to pick a question, then turn it into a defined topic, the paper must have a thesis statement (what you will be arguing).
Descriptions cannot be vague, and the arguments need to be specific and refer closely to the texts, to show how everything connects to the larger argument (my thesis). Paper must have a clear focus, with strong arguments. Work closely with the sources your gonna rely on.
1.) Why did the Palestinian nationalist movement fail to establish a state during the past century? Was this failure primarily the result of the intervention of Western powers? Leadership failures? Rivalries among Arab governments? Were there other important reasons?
2.) During the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union were the major world powers in the Middle East region. How did they differ from former imperial powers, such as Britain and France, in their goals and practices? How has their presence in the region limited the options available to Middle East leaders and populations and how has it offered opportunities?
3.) Explain the causes behind the resurgence of political Islam in the late twentieth century. Why has it gained momentum in many parts of the Middle East, even as these societies have continued to modernize? Provide specific examples in your answer.
4.) The newly independent states of the 1950s and 1960s experienced distinct challenges in terms of economic development, political reform, and international pressures. Discuss and compare how different “types” of people in the Middle East (such as women, workers, political elites, religious minorities, for example) experienced these changes in the post-colonial period.
5.) Over the course of the twentieth century, Turkey and Iran have witnessed the building of nation-states. How did their nineteenth-century experiences as empires inform their transition to nation-states politically, socially, and/or economically? What were some of the similarities and differences between these two countries in the challenges they faced and the solutions they found to the development of a modern nation and national identity in the twentieth century?
