Description of The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order by Samuel P. Huntington ePub
“The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order” is a MUST READ for everyone who wants to make sense of the events in the Middle East. This book is written by Samuel P. Huntington. This book is a must-read for anyone wanting to understand the modern world. This is an expanded version of an article originally published in Foreign Affairs in 1993. The book, like the previous article, is clearly written and is for a far wider audience than just those who read the political science literature. The ten years or so since the original publication of the article have in my opinion only served to highlight how prescient Professor Huntington was. The thesis of this book is that the world is divided into several different civilizations, each vying for power and influence. He defines the main civilizations as the West (North America, Western Europe, and others such as Australia and New Zealand), Orthodox Christian (Slavic), Islam, China, and Hindu. (Latin America and Africa are considered only briefly.) The 21st century, he predicts, will be one of conflict between these civilizations, rather than one of conflict between the ideologies of Capitalism or Communism. One need only look at a newspaper to see the validity of this prediction. These conflicts are not new but are much more important now that each civilization has the power to destroy the civilized world.
This book and the article upon which it is based have been severely criticized on many fronts (see “The Clash of Civilizations? The debate” for the original article and some of this criticism). The strongest criticism has come from those who reject the idea that there is a clash between Islam and the West, but the events since the publication of this book (most clearly the riots of 2005 and early 2006) clearly show that there is indeed a deep-seated conflict between the two. For some, it is hard to accept Huntington’s statement that – “The underlying problem for the West is not Islamic fundamentalism. It is Islam, a different civilization whose people are convinced of the superiority of their culture and are obsessed with the inferiority of their power”.
Professor Huntington does not follow the line of political correctness when he says – “The preservation of the United States and the West requires the renewal of Western identity”, but he makes a strong case for the validity of this idea. He calls for cultural coexistence rather than trying to create a universal culture, and – “In a multicultural world, the constructive course is to renounce universalism, accept diversity, and seek commonalities”. He fears that failure in this task will lead to a nuclear war that will destroy the civilizations involved. Time is only showing how right he was and still is. One cannot convey the importance of this book in a brief review. All one can do is hope that it inspires you to read this very prescient book. If you do you will understand more of what is going on in the world of the 21st century.
