Really interesting course on the modern Middle East. The recommended readings are very good. The lectures and the readings are very thought provoking.

From the lesson
Economics: Bread, Dignity and Freedom
This section deals with the material bases of popular discontent, especially the connection between the states’ explicit promises of delivering welfare that have become increasingly unsustainable in the face of exploding population growth and falling revenues.
