Today: The Persian Gulf remains tense as the rivalry between the regional powers of Saudi Arabia and Iran continues. Tensions escalated in early 2020 as the United States began to intervene in the Gulf, launching an airstrike that killed two Iranian military commanders. What are the historical influences that have led to these tensions? What role, if any, should the United States play? Is using military force a viable foreign policy option for 2021 and beyond?

This class series is following the Library's limited-capacity procedure, in line with the CDC's social distancing guidelines. To accommodate this, we will only have 12 seats available and already placed in the room; there will be no additions. Each person attending must wear a mask throughout the entire class. Every individual must enroll by signing up with Joan Flewelling (see contact info); every sign-up guarantees 1 seat per person, so if you wish to have friends or a significant-other join you, please sign him/her up individually under their name. Approx. 30 minutes before the event, a Library Staff member will greet you at the door and check your name off the sign-up sheet. There will be no exceptions.
