The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order | [Samuel P. Huntington]

The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order

For anyone interested in foreign affairs, this book will catalyze debate, and not only for Mr. Huntington's concluding scenario for World War III. He sees how this could happen if the U.S. mishandles an increasingly xenophobic and truculent China. Chinese assertiveness, Huntington argues, rises out of its felt grievances against a relatively weakening West. After China, the gravest challenge to the West is resurgent Islamic identity.

Publisher's Summary

For anyone interested in foreign affairs, this book will catalyze debate, and not only for Mr. Huntington's concluding scenario for World War III. He sees how this could happen if the U.S. mishandles an increasingly xenophobic and truculent China. Chinese assertiveness, Huntington argues, rises out of its felt grievances against a relatively weakening West. After China, the gravest challenge to the West is resurgent Islamic identity. So what to do? The West should ensure the survival of its values within a stronger European-North American alliance that can offset the emerging Sino-Islamic grouping.

Samuel P. Huntington is a political scientist at Harvard and was a foreign policy aide to President Clinton.

    "Well written Treatise"

    It is long. It goes into the theories of cultural development based on religion, geographic issues, natural resources etc.

    This book is not for the faint of heart looking for an easy read on Saturday night. It will take you many nights of listening, but ask yourself, "How much do I want to know, am I tough enough to go with the detail this book can give you?"

    It is a college level course, I liked that about it, actually. I am tired of the easy namby pamby 7th grade reading level of the local papers/ internet newspapers which give only a fraction of information.

    It is written from a man who is basically half liberal-half conservative (altho he voted for Kerry - see NYT interview with him), but who has sane viewpoints/theories that a conservative will understand & appreciate, even if not agreeing with some of them.
    I am a conservative, but gives credit where credit is due.

    "A prince for our time."

    The scope of this book is impressive, and is a great resourse for anyone wanting a global picture of international relations , and a predictor of how relations will unfold in the near and long term. I feel this book is devoid of the Ideologies of our time and sets out to portray a pragmatic and realistic view of our circumstances and challenges as a society. It filled a few holes in my study of history.

    "Wonderful Analysis"

    There is a great deal of value in this text whether or not you agree with the specifics of the conclusions offered. Wide ranging and backed by specifics the thought process of the author are provocative.

    "download problem"

    When I first tried to play this I got a VERY loud background echo and coulf hardly hear the main audio. Now it won't play at all.

    Probably did something wrong for the download format. I would like to cancel this download and start over. Possible?

    Thanks and regards,

    LW

    "This is not well suited for audio"

    I absolutely cannot get through this book even though it's well within my interest area. I found the numbered points and repetition irritating. The narrator did his best, but this is not something I could stick with. The themes may be compelling to some, but to me this sounded like a (boring) undergraduate lecture.

    "read instead of download"

    this is a great book, but the audio version wasn't on par with where the chapters were, meaning on my ipod if i clicked on chapter 3 to listen to the narrator, it was really the last 3 pages of chapter 2. so that was annoying, and than you will hear the narrator say 'chapter 3' 5 minutes in chapter 3 section.

    "15 years later - still very relevant"

    I've heard about this book many times. Many references to it over the years. Finally, thanks to audible, I've also had the privilege to listen to it. For anyone interested in a view of the world - I recommend this book.
    (not saying this is The true view of the world - but sure possible and thoughtful.)

    "Presciently Brilliant!"

    I realize this book has garnered considerable criticism in the post 9/11 world, but regardless, it is a masterpiece. Though perhaps not politically correct, many of the predictions it makes have already proven valid. I would place this book on a par with Thucydides' "Peloponnesian War" for its incisive and clear political insights. Though first published in 1996, it remains shockingly relevant over ten years on. Read it!
