    Reflect: At the conclusion of the First World War the Ottoman Empire was divided into individual, component parts, placed under mandates by the newly minted League of Nations. As a result, Great Britain and France administered most of the lands now considered part of the Middle East (see the Sykes-Picot Agreement). How did Europeans view the lands that they were to “protect” under the “Mandate System” (as it is known)? How was this simply imperialism by another name?

    Write: Using specific examples, discuss at least two of the following:

    • How the foreign policies of Great Britain and France shaped the modern political boundaries of the

      Middle East.

    • How the country you have chosen for your final paper was impacted by this the Mandate System and/or

      British and French colonialism

    • How the Mandate system compared to earlier European imperialism in the Muslim World by France,

      Great Britain, and Italy.

      Your initial post should be at least 250-300 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.
