In his celebrated 1993 book The Clash of Civilizations
, political scientist Samuel Huntington argued that the fundamental source of conflict in the post - Cold War world would not be primarily ideological or economic, but cultural. In The Geopolitics of Emotion
Dominique Moïsi, a leading authority on international affairs, demonstrates that our post-9/11 world has become divided by more than cultural fault lines between nations and civilizations. Moïsi brilliantly chronicles how the geopolitics of today is characterized by a "clash of emotions," and how cultures of fear, humiliation, and hope are reshaping the world.
