New Blog on Middle East Politics

Political Science students report daily on twelve Middle East nations

A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned the class on Middle East Politics that I'm teaching this semester at the University of Southern California. Part of the course is to learn about blogging by creating a site and writing for it 5 days a week.

On a number of occasions the students have found stories before the main international media have reported them. That's because they are encouraged to look locally for less familiar perspectives.
