Doha Experiment: Arab Kingdom, Catholic College, Jewish Teacher

Gary Wasserman, who has had a distinguished career as an educator, writer and media consultant, was a professor for eight years in Doha, Qatar, where he taught American and international politics courses at Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service. He wrote that the title of his book, The Doha Experiment: Arab Kingdom, Catholic College, Jewish Teacher, sounds like a politically incorrect joke but that his experiences gave him a unique perspective on the Middle East. He learned especially about the future of liberal education, Muslim youth and the process of educating Arab women. His book illustrates why Americans need to understand the clash of civilizations.
