The US and the Arab Revolutions

Download: Audio

Speaker(s): Professor William Quandt
Chair: Professor Fawaz Gerges

Recorded on 8 December 2011 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.

The US has been an active player in the Middle East over the past century, but has been of minor relevance during the Arab uprisings of 2011. The upheaval, however, will have deep implications for US policy in the region. William Quandt is a professor in the Department of Politics at the University of Virginia.
