Dr. William Gudelunas

The War Between the States:

The United States Civil War

Did slavery or secession cause the

Civil War? Was it a needless war?

How did our torn nation mend its

wounds afterward? It is with great

pleasure that we welcome back

The Media and the Middle East

What DON’T we hear from the media

about the situation in the Middle East?

Headlines with little substance don’t

do justice to the realities all sides must

deal with. Promises abound; some

are made in good faith, and others

are not. Professor Emeritus



who teaches classes for the

University of California-Riverside’s

Osher Program, takes us under the

radar for a more in-depth exploration

of this subject and region.
