Understanding the current conflicts and political changes in the Middle East us important for American educators if American students are to understand the dynamics of the region. To discuss these issues, FPRI held its 12th History Institute for Teachers on October 16-17, 2004. Forty teachers from 15 states attended the weekend program at the Gregg Conference Center in Bryn Mawr, PA, sponsored by Mason Crest Publishers and Mr. and Mrs. Robert A. Fox. Sessions included: (1) The Future of Saudi Arabia and What al-Qaeda Websites Tell Us (Michael Doran); (2) Iraqi Democracy (Eric Davis); (3) U. S. Policy and the Arab-Israeli Conflict (Harvey Sicherman); (4) The Role of Syria, Jordan, and Egypt (Najib Ghadbian); (5) Economics, Demography and Oil (Bernard Munk); (6) Women in the Middle East (Beth Baron); and (7) The Next Middle East (Robert D.
