    This is a masterpiece of scare mongering, not recommended for the faint of heart Sage Huntington can make you groan inside omg, tomorrow there will be a massive conspiracy between the democracy hating Sinic and Islamic civilizations whatever that means to destroy our democracy, civilized society and freedom and push us back to the Dark Ages Don t you see how they ve already started infiltrating the US government with an African Muslim communist called Obama And hapless America will heroically fight that struggle against evil and oppression until the end of time and come out gloriously victorious But before that, we need to fight terror, terror, terror and build aircrafts, missiles, military bases and bomb the shit out of them if necessary I m sorry I can t pass this test of valor and courage, before this apocalypse happens, I d rather drive to Mars A rather depressing thought So much for the ranting Now the serious stuff Samuel Huntington laid out his analysis of conflicts in the Post Cold War world in his article in 1993 It is my hypothesis that the fundamental source of conflict in this new world will not be primarily ideological or primarily economic The great divisions among humankind and the dominating source of conflict will be cultural Nation states will remain the most powerful actors in world affairs, but the principal con...

    Clash of Civilizations is an easy book to misread Many have taken Huntington to task because he pessimistically forecasted a world of discord following the Cold War The headlines of the past decade beg to differ The world according to Samuel Huntington was going to reset to its multi polar default setting, each pole being the center of a culture religion ethnicity that had always existed in world history The border regions between these centers were going to be fraught with friction and conflict, just as they always have The bipolar Cold War was the aberration, just as un natural as a unipolar world following the fall of the Soviet Union Clash of Civilizations is an ideal companion to Paul Kennedy s Rise and Fall of Great Powers, but use it as a substitute for Chapter 8 in Kennedy s book Many misread this book as well, skipping all the material just to read what Kennedy forecasted for the world post 1990 Where Kennedy got it wrong, Huntingto...

    The Preservation of The West orMaking America Great AgainHuntington polarized his readers, being a book the liberals would rather not believe as it implies religious and cultural differences will continue to divide humanity, and also one that the right would rather ignore, preferring Fukuyama s thesis of Capitalism as the supreme achievement of mankind, over this accommodating world view.Now we are far enough from the end of the Cold War to be able to judge this book fairly In the immediate aftermath of the cold war, strategists were looking for a theory that will help us understand the world in conceptual terms the conceptual simplicity of the bipolar cold war world enticed them into believing that a new world order will be formed, which can again be explained under a new framework Huntington probably came up with one of the most realistic models unlike the ideologically divided world before the cold war, the post Cold War world s inhabitants will increasingly define themselves not on ideological grounds, but on cultural civilizational, even religious lines and hence the new world order will be ...

    This is still a very valid book today The author s premise is that with the collapse of communism and the break up of the Soviet Union, the Cold War is over and therefore we need a new paradigm in which to view our world We are back to the basics of culture and religion.Mr Huntington constructs a frightful world whereas, before, there could be rationality between liberal democracy and the communist block, the room for agreement between absolutist religions in the Islamic and Western Christian worlds are fraught with problems.Russia is back to Orthodoxy and its peripheral borders are dangerous As Mr Huntington would say Russia has Fault Lines with the Christian Catholic world in Northeast Europe, with Islam in the south and in Southeast Europe with both Islam and Christianity The author talks at length of the emerging China and how its increasing power and geographical reach could lead to conflict with the West China will become less subservient and the countries bordering it, like Japan, will need to redo their alliances.The author is also adept at changing our perspective The U.S saw the defeat of the Soviet Union in Afghanistan as a victory for the West against communism, but the Islamic world viewed it as a successful religious jihad against a superpower The West and...

    It is over 10 years since I read Samuel Huntington s full length expansion of his classic Foreign Affairs article This was read during my final year at university, and back then, it was fashionable amongst many to refute, or outrightly mock Professor Huntington s disturbing piece of work The work was derided amongst my fellow students, it was frequently derieded amongst academia, it is something of a fashion statement to deride Huntington s work Why Could it be, perhaps, because of a deep, inbuilt feeling that we just know that he was right In the 10 years since I read this monumental study, I have encountered very little in current events to refute his argument Time has vindicated Huntington, and will continue to vindicate him.Huntington identifies 9 civilizations, Western, Orthodox, Islamic, Latin American, African, Sinic, Hindu, Buddhist and Japanese.The 2 civilizations that Huntington considers to be the most potentially antagonistic toward the West are Islamic and Sinic, however, as this book was completed in 2006, various conflicts had not yet played out between the West and the Orthodox World, and this is deserving of a special place as a potential faultline civilization.Huntington considers the value systems of Sinic and Islamic culture as essentially incompatible with the West, and attempts to assimilate or reconcile Western values with these cultures is ultimately futile Therefore,...

    Hypothesis It is my hypothesis that the fundamental source of conflict in this new world will not be primarily ideological or primarily economic The great divisions among humankind and the dominating source of conflict will be cultural Nation states will remain the most powerful actors in world affairs, but the principal conflicts of global politics will occur between nations and groups of different civilizations The clash of civilizations will dominate global politics The fault lines between civilizations will be the battle lines of the future Major CivilizationsWestern Christian Civilization Comprising the United States and Canada, Western and Central Europe, Australia and OceaniaLatin America and the former member states of the Soviet Union are included, or are instead their own separate civilizations, will be an important future consideration for those regionsThe Orthodox WorldThe former Soviet Union, the former Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece and RomaniaThe Buddhist AreasBhutan, Cambodia, Laos, Mongolia, Myanmar, ...

    There is no doubt that this is a must read if you are interested in global politics That does not mean that I think the book is right Quite the contrary, I think the book is dangerously oversimplifying the current situation in world politics and trying to shoe horn world events into a seductively simple looking world view that, although advertised as a new paradigm, looks suspiciously like the cold war paradigm on steroids Since the human mind often prefers such simple explanations over complicated ones, and because they also tend to be rather convenient for power hungry leaders and institutions, these ideas should be very critically examined.As a whole the book seems well argued and an honest attempt at analysis However, as soon as you start talking to people that are from and or know about particular regions and worlds such as the Islamic world, South America or Eastern Europe, I consistently find that they confirm that Huntington s...
