In order to understand what is going on right now in the so-called "Middle East" (a colonial / WSR construct), it is necessary to understand what transpired during the 1919 Peace Conference. In this connection, I refer interested readers to Paris 1919: Six Months That Changed The World by white female Margaret Macmillan and A Peace to End All Peace: The Fall of the Ottoman Empire and the Creation of the Modern Middle East by white male David Fromkin. (A course guide summarising Macmillan's book is available here and Fromkin's book is available to download (in PDF format) from here.)

Interested viewers are also invited to check out the following dramatization of the events surrounding the 1919 Peace Conference available on YouTube:
