Middle East – WWII Discussion Post

I’m studying and need help with a Writing question to help me learn.

Min 200 words

Consider these questions with regards to the Middle East in the Post-WWI world:

1. What are some of the legacies of the First World War?

2. How did the roles and actions of the Great Powers (U.K., France, Russia (Soviet Union), U.S.A, etc) change? Or did they change at all?

3. What were some of the problems with the new national constructs in the Middle East?

4. What set modern Turkey apart from the old Ottoman Empire? How does Kemalism fit into our understanding of nationalism? Was it a Turkish idea? European idea? A mixture? What is your take on Kemalism as it fits into what we’ve learned about nationalism and modernism.
