Commentary on the Politics, History and Culture of the Middle East and Central Asia, by Brian Ulrich
Monday, February 18, 2008
I was away all last week at several undisclosed locations. While I was away, an unknown party or parties killed Hizbullah's number two, Imad Mughniyah. These two matters are, however, completely unrelated.
I am an Associate Professor in History at Shippensburg University, where I teach courses in Middle Eastern and world history. My two major research areas are the Middle East from the 7th through 10th centuries and the Persian Gulf from ancient times to the present. Nothing on this site represents an official position of Shippensburg University.
