Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Based on the author's seminal article in Foreign Affairs, Samuel P. Huntington's The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order is a provocative and prescient analysis of the state of world politics after the fall of communism. In this incisive work, the renowned political scientist explains how "civilizations" have replaced nations and ideologies as the driving force in global politics today and offers a brilliant analysis of the current climate and future possibilities of our world's volatile political culture.

Review:

"A benchmark for informed speculation on those always fascinating questions: Just where are we in history? What hidden hand is controlling our destiny?...A searching reflection on our global state." New York Times

Review:

"An intellectual tour de force: bold, imaginative, and provocative. A seminal work that will revolutionize our understanding of international affairs." Zbigniew Brzezinsk

Review:

"The book is studded with insights, flashes of rare brilliance, great learning, and in particular, an ability to see the familiar in a new and provocative way." The Washington Post Book World

Review:

"The book is dazzling in its scope and grasp of the intricacies of contemporary global politics." Wall Street Journal

Review:

"A set of sharp, controversial theses and a coherent message make this a critical current affairs book." Booklist

Synopsis:

This incisive, international bestselling exploration of the conflicts that have erupted since the fall of communism offers a provocative portrait of a future world driven not by ideologies or economics, but by ethnicity, religion, and other cultural forces. "Dazzling in its scope and grasp of the intricacies of contemporary global politics".--"The Wall Street Journal". Maps & diagrams.
