Student Testimonial:

Mr. Barron did a great job of taking the information in the text and relating it to actual events taking place in the world today (Egypt and Middle East). His background as an Infantry and Intelligence Officer in the US Army are invaluable as an instructor for this course. His keen insight and real world experience reinforced events listed in the text and topics discussed in the lectures.
