Nader Hashemi, the Director of the Center for Middle East Studies at Denver University, shares with us an educated look at how democratic countries have responded in comparison to other types of governments. It is both thoughtful and interesting. Nader will take you on a well-researched journey that will leave you thankful for being in a democratic country while also questioning the different versions of democratic countries.
