This is a masterpiece of scare mongering, not recommended for the faint of heart. Sage Huntington can make you groan inside: omg, tomorrow there will be a massive conspiracy between the democracy-hating Sinic and Islamic civilizations (whatever that means) to destroy our democracy, civilized society and freedom and push us back to the Dark Ages. Don’t you see how they’ve already started infiltrating the US government with an African Muslim communist called Obama? And hapless America will heroica ...more

"Clash of Civilizations" is an easy book to misread. Many have taken Huntington to task because he pessimistically forecasted a world of discord following the Cold War. The headlines of the past decade beg to differ.

The world according to Samuel Huntington was going to reset to its multi-polar default setting, each pole being the center of a culture/religion/ethnicity that had always existed in world history. The border regions between these centers were going to be fraught with friction and co

This is still a very valid book today. The author’s premise is that with the collapse of communism and the break-up of the Soviet Union, the Cold War is over and therefore we need a new paradigm in which to view our world. We are back to the basics of culture and religion.

Mr. Huntington constructs a frightful world; whereas, before, there could be rationality between liberal democracy and the communist block, the room for agreement between absolutist religions in the Islamic and Western Christia

كتاب يجب أن يقرأه كل مهتم بشؤون أمته ومعاركها.. وهو كتاب قوي ومهم ومفيد.

فيه تدليس كبير في أشياء كثيرة، خصوصا فيما يتعلق بمحاولته صناعة وحدة ثقافية غربية تحت قيادة أمريكية فهو يتجاوز كل الفروق ويسميها "علاقات قربى ثقافية" بينما إذا وجد أقل من هذه الفروق بين قوم يريد لهم أن يكونوا مختلفين لجعلها فورا من "عوامل التمزق" التي تستحيل معها الوحدة.

عموما، جوانب تدليسه لا تهمنا كثيرا لأنها متعلقة بموقفه ورؤيته من قومه، بينما ما يهمنا هو نظرتهم إلينا وللصراع معنا.. فهو في هذا الجانب مهم للغاية.

A pretty decent book. I enjoyed it and his thesis was intriguing though a little simplistic and not entirely original. We as westerners sure do have an obsession with breaking everything down into nice little neat packages so they can be better classified and studied. That is both the strength and weakness of this book. If only cultures and civilizations were so easy to just lump people together under one stereotype wow that would make the world much more predictable than it is. Alas the world i ...more

Huntington polarized his readers, being a book the liberals would rather not believe as it implies religious and cultural differences will continue to divide humanity, and also one that the right would rather ignore, preferring Fukuyama's thesis of Capitalism as the supreme achievement of mankind, over this more accommodating world-view.

Now we are far enough from the end of the Cold War to be able to judge this book more fairly. In the imme

It is over 10 years since I read Samuel Huntington's full length expansion of his classic Foreign Affairs article. This was read during my final year at university, and back then, it was fashionable amongst many to refute, or outrightly mock Professor Huntington's disturbing piece of work. The work was derided amongst my fellow students, it was frequently derieded amongst academia, it is something of a fashion statement to deride Huntington's work. Why?
Could it be, perhaps, because of a deep, in

There is no doubt that this is a must-read if you are interested in global politics. That does not mean that I think the book is right. Quite the contrary, I think the book is dangerously oversimplifying the current situation in world politics and trying to shoe-horn world events into a seductively simple-looking world view that, although advertised as a new paradigm, looks suspiciously like the cold-war paradigm on steroids. Since the human mind often prefers such simple explanations over more ...more

الثورة -كما يتم تعريفها في قاموس شامبر الموسوعي للغة الإنجليزية- هي "تغيير شامل وجذري بعيد المدى في طرق التفكير وفعل الأشياء." نعم هي كذلك، فقد ثار الناس في العالم العربي ضد الأنظمة الفاسدة والراكدة لأنهم ينشدون التغيير الشامل الجذري بعيد المدى الذي وُصف في هذا التعريف. ثاروا لأنهم شعروا بالخيانة والغدر من قبل الأنظمة السياسية التي تتراوح من ممالك وهمية إلى جمهوريات استبدادية مزورة أو ما يعرف بـ "الجمهوريات الملكية" repubchies أو Jumilikiyate"، وهو مصطلح ابتدعه الناشط المصري الليبرالي سعد الدين

في عام ألف الكاتب صامويل هانتجتون كتابه " صدام الحضارات " بعد أن أثار
مقال كتبه في عام بنفس العنوان جدلاً كبيراً، فأحب أن يناقش أفكاره بشكل أوسع بطرحه هـذا الكتاب،
وكالمقال فقد أثار الكتاب جدلاً أوسع في أنحاء العالم وخاصة بعد أحداث سبتمبر.

وتبدأ النسخة العربية بمقدمة المترجم والتي فند فيها أفكار الكتاب واعترض على طرحه
مما جعلني أشعر بعدم الرغبة في قراءته، فكنت أتمنى لو كان المترجم قد أجل تحليله لنهاية الكتاب
وترك للقاريء حرية التحليل والاستنتاج.

تقييمى للكتاب كان من المفترض ان يكون أقل من ذلك بسبب غرور الكاتب وتعاليه المستفز بتفوق الحضارة الغربية وقيادتها للعالم بالرغم من اعترافه بأن قيادة وريادة العالم كانت وقتاً طويلاً بعيدة عن الغرب وحضارته
لكن رأيت ان المتفوق مادياً عبر التاريخ هو من يكتب التاريخ حسب رؤيته وتقديره ولذلك فليكتب كما يشاء هنتجتون ونأخذ من الكتاب ما ينفعنا ونترك ما يضرنا.
يرى الكاتب ان ضعف الحضارة العربية والاسلامية وأفول وهجها يعود فى الاساس لتشرذم طوائف المسلمين وتشتت جهودهم وتفرقهم تحت أعلام وولاءات مختلفة والبعد عن ا

Huntington challenged my thinking on several issues:
1. Culture at the macro, or "civilizational" level plays a fundamental role in global politics - including conflict. In fact, it plays a more enduring role than ideology.

2. Western culture isn't necessarily destined to become universal (I admit that I believed - and still do sometimes - otherwise), in fact, Western civilization is in fact in decline based on several measures such as population, wealth, political, and military influence.

Huntington refers to the post-Cold War era in his hypothesis that cultural differences in our international society will lead to conflict. He comments on the importance of borders among nation states and perpetuates the realist notion that cultural differences can only lead to conflict. Instead of embracing the differences that unite us, he states that some actors are bound to be more powerful, hence conflict is inevitable. When referring to the “great cultural divisions” he brings as the princi ...more

While I don't always agree with Huntington's conclusions and opinions -- and I sometimes dispute his "facts" -- I must say that this book is an excellent introduction to the issues that we, inhabitants of the world, face as the world continues to "shrink" and members of such a great variety of civilizations and cultures are brought closer and closer together. "The other" is often more different from ourselves -- and more difficult to really understand -- than most of us would like to admit. Two ...more

تقييمي بشكل عام للكتاب انه ممتاز واستفادتي منه كانت كبيرة.

يقسم المؤلف -بإختصار شديد- كتابه إلى خمسة أقسام رئيسية ذات تسلسل وتدرج منطقي حيث:
- يبدأ بطرح تعريفات الحضارة ومكوناتها وأسس الهويات فيها ومفاهيم الصراعات الثقافية الكبرى.
- ثم ينتقل إلى الحديث عن الضعف الذي سيطرأ على الثقافة الغربية في ميزان القوة العسكرية والاقتصادية والسكانية لصالح القوى الشرقية والإسلامية.
- ثم الحديث عن نظام الحضارات الناشئ والتفاف الدول ذات الثقافات المتقاربة حول "دول المركز".

This is a decent book in the manner that the author covers many different aspects of interaction between different cultures and civilizations, with a lot of research and some adequate analysis. It is however, in my opinion, deeply flawed; as a lot of missing factors were neglected, either because of a lack of space or concern by the author. I would not recommend it to anyone as a primer on international relations, however for further study there are some good points to be considered. His analysi ...more

Hypothesis

It is my hypothesis that the fundamental source of conflict in this new world will not be primarily ideological or primarily economic. The great divisions among humankind and the dominating source of conflict will be cultural. Nation states will remain the most powerful actors in world affairs, but the principal conflicts of global politics will occur between nations and groups of different civilizations. The clash of civilizations will dominate global politics. The fault lines betwee

I found this book seminal in its content and coverage for three key reasons:

- The book is based on an essay written in 1993, post which various editions were published 1996 through 1998 in the first go. The applicability of the ideas and the constructs of the author are valid 20 years later. In fact many of the civilizational fault lines the author covers are manifesting as is 2 decades hence.

The thesis was so simple it was as if I had always believed it but I was unfair to take credit for assuming the simplicity was something that I had synthesized prior to reading the book.

Huntington, clarifies what seems so obvious. That the world clusters by civilizational boundaries. People tend to fight with or against one another based upon multiple cultural factors that make up one's civilizational heritage rather than superficial borders created by a nation state.

This book was written in 1996, a few years after the end of the Cold War, and introduced a world order paradigm based on conflict between civilizations (as opposed to ideologies such as capitalism vs communism). The material is obviously dated, but the author made some good points to consider.

The use in the book of the break-up of Yugoslavia and the resulting civil war between Catholic Croatians, Orthodox Serbs and Islamic Bosnians got my attention. (I had spent several months in 1993 cruising u

Pretty well written, though imho many opinions in it might be oversimplified or overgeneralized. At least as someone growing up in the so-called "Sinic civilization", I can't imagine our future leaders to be stupid enough to ever directly challenge the west for world dominance. Finally, non-western cultures can be reformed to embrace "western" values like individual freedom and human rights, e.g. Japan and Taiwan, and within "western civilization" there are also some reactionary and totalitarian ...more

The Cold War ended about a quarter of a century ago. Its end ushered in a great hope for the future of humanity, a future that many had hoped would be free from wars and other devastating conflicts. The liberal Western democracy seemed to be marching triumphant, and with an exception of a few holdouts (China being the biggest and most important one) its future, and the future of the world order based on its principles, seemed assured.

'Prescient' could be the best word to describe this book.

Huntington foretells a growing civilizational clash between states following the collapse of the abberant ideological cleft between the socialist and capitalist world in 1989. The most heated clash will be between the Islamic and Western civilization, and the Sinic and Western (American) civilization in the Asian region. This book was written five years before September 11, and a decade before the US would find itself trillions of dollars

A great many people hate this book. It's not hard to see why, given the politics and wars of the last nine years. But I read it twice--- once c. 1998 and once just after September 2001. I can see the risks in what Huntington is talking about, and I can see the bad-faith ways his ideas could be used. I also don't always agree with the definitions he uses. But I still think this is a key book. Huntington is, I think, very right about something. Cultures matter. Cultures shape the way countries vie ...more

I read this book on the recommendation of Robert D. Kaplan in one of his books. I had heard of it before but since it is not particularly popular with religious and political liberals I hadn't read it. I'm so glad I finally did. In the mid 1990's, shortly after the Cold War ended, Huntington predicted the current crisis in Eastern Ukraine. His basic thesis is that the ideological divisions of the cold war were going to be replaced by the cultural differences, often coinciding with religious diff ...more

Fantastic read, I had previously read parts of this book a few years ago and decided it was time to read the whole thing and I was glad that I did, it didn't disappoint.

Huntington has a firm grasp on world politics and as such makes this book easier to read than some of its contemporaries. His theories propose that we are moving away from our historical religious divides and moving toward civilisational groups in new world order. These new civilisations are driven predominately by culture and cu
