The USC Trojan Guild of Los Angeles welcomed Glendale resident Richard H. Dekmejian, professor of political science and director of the Institute of Armenian Studies at USC, as its guest speaker at the first fall meeting on Oct. 4 in the Davidson Conference Center. Dekmejian is considered an expert in Middle Eastern politics, the Arab-Israeli conflict, Islamic civilization, terrorism, U.S. foreign policy, oil politics, international human relations and religious terrorism. His recent books include “Islam in Revolution” and “The Just Prince: A Manual of Leadership.” Dekmejian's presentation focused on current Middle Eastern issues, which was an appropriate topic, said member Christin Bey Moses, because the meeting was held just before the national election and because it parallels the guild's theme for the year - “USC's Global Reach.” The Trojan Guild has been an active women's philanthropic support group at USC since 1960.
