80 - US-Middle East Relations, Part 3: Partition

CONTENT WARNING: The following episode includes discussion of violent themes, specifically war and genocide. Listener discretion is advised.

This multi-episode series is about the history of relations between the United States and the Middle East, including both US foreign policy and the Middle Eastern immigrant experience. In this episode, Jaye discusses the decline and fall of the Ottoman Empire, including World War I and the Sykes-Picot Agreement, which set into motion the partition of the Middle East after the war.
