Research Interests

My research interests focus on revolutionary movements in the Middle East, Middle Eastern nationalism, western imperialism, pan-Arabism, and the Cold War in the Middle East. My book The Iraqi Revolution of 1958: A Revolutionary Quest for Unity and Security will be published in 2010. I am currently working on a second book project, the Lebanese civil war of 1958.and the American intervention in Lebanon the same year. This project analyzes relations between the US Marines and Lebanese militias, and peace efforts undertaken by Lebanese religious leaders.


Teaching Interests

I teach a Middle East survey course in the fall and topic courses in the spring, some of which are History of Iraq, the Arab-Israeli Conflict, History of Iran, and History of Terrorism. I intend to develop additional courses on Arab nationalism, revolutions in the Middle East, the Ottoman Empire, and the United States and the Middle East in the near future.
