The Political Implications For Islamic Countries In the 2000 Us Security Strategy

Mr. Blake's research focuses on the commitment of the United States to promote democracy and human freedom in the Middle East and North Africa. His research currently focuses on case studies of Egypt and Iran, but he hopes to extend it to cover American democracy at home.
