    Book details

In 1993, Samuel P. Huntington boldly asserted in the pages of Foreign Affairs that world politics was entering a new phase, one in which cultural differences in religion, history, language, and tradition were replacing Cold War tensions and would soon become the world's fundamental points of conflict. Huntington's striking thesis elicited both criticism and praise from the media and political experts around the world. More than a decade later, "The Clash of Civilizations?" continues to be a touchstone in global politics as writers passionately debate its merits and propose counter theories of their own. This collection presents Samuel Huntington's original, seminal essay followed by critical responses published in Foreign Affairs, including the author's reply to his critics and contemporary additions to the enduring question of how to understand world conflict. In this second edition, fresh contributions make The Clash of Civilizations?: The Debate newly relevant to students of International Relations and Political Science.

James F. Hoge, Jr., is the editor of "Foreign Affairs" and was previously publisher of the "New York Daily News" and editor and publisher of the "Chicago Sun-Times." Gideon Rose, the managing editor of "Foreign Affairs," has served on the staff of the National Security Council and has taught at Princeton and Columbia universities.

    The essay, "the Clash of Civilizations" started discussions of post Cold War potential conflicts, and the title became a bumper sticker ideology. Responses to the essay, many also in essay format wre all found in Foreign Affairs magazine, and are well worth reading today, although decades old now. they have not lost their timeliness.

    The view from Damascus is an analysis of Syria fundameltal for the comprehension of all aspects of that country, ethnical, religious, political and of its relations with Israel and its politics in the dynamic of the Middle East.
