America's Role in the Middle East. Public Talk Series.
This program guide encourages discussion on what role the United States should pursue in the Middle East. The guide is designed to assist in the discussion of critical social and political issues through a balanced, nonpartisan presentation of a spectrum of views. The core of the program considers four underlying goals: (1) the United States as regional superpower; (2) the United States creates a military balance of power in the region; (3) the United States promotes regional and global cooperation in Middle East security; and (4) the United States minimizes its role in the Middle East. The program packet contains the following sections: (1) introductory letter; (2) notes to organizers; (3) suggestions for leading this discussion; (4) leading a study circle; (5) four options--a framework for discussion; (6) the options in brief; (7) perspectives on the options; (8) suggestions for participants; (9) two background readings; (10) follow-up form; and (11) Public Talk Series Programs and other resources available from the Study Circles Resource Center.
