    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Biale is amazing. He tells the class on day one that he is a Zionist, but because he believes that the Jews deserve a home he also believes in a Palestinian homeland. He teaches a very balanced narrative and presents both sides of the story. He is Jewish and spends ample time in Israel, and his presentation of all sides of the story means that his narrative is much more rational than some of the other professors and TAs on campus who have never visited or base their opinions on experiences 50 years ago.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the history of Israel from the original Zionist, Theodor Herzl, to modern day Israel with Benjamin Netanyahu. I learned both sides of the story, and realize that neither side came out clean. The class was very calm, and Professor Biale always answers questions (no matter how inflammatory) in a very respectful manner.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all of the reading, get a good study partner, and don't miss any classes. If you miss class you are going to feel very much out of the loop.
