Is the Middle East Going Through Its 30 Years War?
By Dr. Ibrahim Al-Marashi (In English)



About this Talk:

The conflict between Shi'a and Sunnis, Iran and Saudi Arabia, has been described as the Middle East's 30 Years War, referring to the European wars among Catholic and Protestant powers from 1618-1648. This talk will examine the similarities and differences, and analyze what the current conflict means for the future of the region.

About the Speaker:

Ibrahim Al-Marashi is Assistant Professor of Middle East History at California State University San Marcos.  His research primarily deals with the history of Iraq, and violent conflict in the Middle East. His current book project in progress is a history of the Iran-Iraq War from the perspective of the Iraqi military and the security and intelligence forces, focusing on the projection of violence against Iranian forces and Iraq’s Kurds. He is the co-author of Iraq’s Armed Forces: An Analytical History (Routledge, 2008).  He obtained his D.Phil. in 2004 in Modern History at St. Antony’s College, University of Oxford, completing a thesis on the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait.
