Teaching the Long War and Jihadism. Footnotes. Volume 14, Number 25
Habeck, Mary
Foreign Policy Research Institute
This essay is based from the author's presentation at "U.S. Foreign Policy and the Modern Middle East", a Summer Institute for Teachers sponsored by The American Institute for History Education and The Wachman Center of the Foreign Policy Research Institute, held June 25-27, 2009, in Philadelphia. This presentation addresses ways to understand the war on terror, or as the author calls it, the "long war"; as well as "jihadism"; and also how to teach these issues to high school students. It tackles the differences between Islamists and other Muslims, and covers discussions on beliefs, practices, and ways of thinking about religion.
