Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The collapse of communism and the rise of militant Islamic movements in the Middle East, raised the specter of a future dominated by the conflict between "Islam" and "the West". September 11 has only branded that notion onto the worlds consciousness. In this up-to-date edition of Halliday's classic text, he sets out to reject these interpretations. Considering the sources of Islamic militancy and analyzing the confrontational rhetoric of both Islamic and anti-Muslim demagogues, he provides an alternative, critical but cautious, reassessment.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 218-248) and index.

Fred Halliday is Professor of International Relations at the London School of Economics.
