The Iraq War and the Prime Minister

Professor Charles Tripp

In the first video, Professor Charles Tripp recounts a meeting with Tony Blair and Jack Straw prior to the invasion of Iraq in 2003. This is one of a series of videos of Tripp produced by the Choices Program for its new curriculum A Global Controversy: The U.S. Invasion of Iraq.

The curriculum materials, designed for use in high school social studies classrooms, are the result of a year's worth of work and collaboration with scholars at the Watson Institute and beyond.  

The second video contains highlights from the more the fifty videos available for classrooms and previews some of the issues students and teachers will encounter in the printed curriculum materials.
