Saliba, George
[ASCM V2008] Contemporary Islamic Civilization

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

The class is easy. There is hardly any work (I probably spent 2 hours TOTAL-for the entire semester-for daily class preparation and homework). VERY EASY A.

That said, you aren'g going to learn much from this class. While Saliba is very nice, his lectures are disorganized, and the readings non-sensical in connection to what he's teaching. If you want to actually learn about Contemp. Islamic Civ, there has to be abetter class out there. But if you just want an easy A to get your major cultures done with, this is the class for you.

Workload:

easy midterm, 8-10 page final paper.
