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...more
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

كتاب صدام الحضارات ن الكتاب الذي أشعل الجدل و لم يطفئه .

و سبب إهتمامي بهذا الكتاب ، هو ما قادني أن أعمل بحث بعشرين صفحة عن محتواه لمادة التاريخ في المدرسة .

كتاب كتبه أحد رجالات المحافظين الجدد و أحد رسامين الإستراتيجية الأميركية في العشرين عاما الماضية.

تحدث هنتغتون عن الكثير من المواضيع ، إذ تحدث عن طبيعة العلاقة بين الحضارات و موقفها حاضرا و شكلها مستقبلا.

لا أستغرب عدائية الكاتب تجاه الإسلام ، إذ تراهم يظهرهم عدائيين و همج ، و بالمقابل لم يذكر اليهود أو حتى اسم إسرائيل قط.

و لكن للأمانة ، ذكر هن...more

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...more

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.

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.

3. Confl...more

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
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. Thus, Democracy and Commun...more

the English review after the Arabic.

صدام الحضارات لصاموئيل هنتنغتون

بعد قراءة الكتاب أجد نفسي اتساءل: (هل الكتاب من طرح فكرة صدام الحضارات، أم أن الفكرة المقررة مسبقاً هي من استلزمت وجود هذا الكتاب.)
في كم تحليلي عميق واطلاع تاريخي كبير لا يمكن اغفاله مطلقاً، يقوم صموائيل هنتنغتون بعرض محاور واطراف الصراعات العالمية وبخاصة ابان الحرب الباردة وما بعدها، عارضاً بعض الخصائص الخاصة عن تلك الثقافات او الحضارات المتصارعة او المتناحرة، او حتى تلك المتحالفة والتي تسمى...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".
- ثم يأتي إلى مناقشة فكرة الصدام الحضاري...more
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

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. In the memorable phrase of Francis Fukuyama, history was over...more

في عام ١٩٩٦ ألف الكاتب صامويل هانتجتون كتابه " صدام الحضارات " بعد أن أثار
مقال كتبه في عام ١٩٩٣ 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 ١١ 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.

أهم الأفكار التي طرحها صامويل هانتجتون...more

This book changed some of my views on what's going around us in the world and it maybe clarify some political relations in the modern crisis.It's a very important book, gives a new perspective on global political relations between different countries, nations and civilizations.Although it's a bit old nowadays, but some of his theory were proven to be right, in case on the war of the US on terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan, the harsh words against China's political and economical situation begun...more
'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...more
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
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
Huntington was not unfair at all in this book. Even he was justified about Islam and its bloody mentality. We have a lot examples which justify to Huntington. For instance, the September 11 attacks, the crisis of caricature about a Islam prophet Mohammed, the events of Salman Rushdie,he wrote ‘the Satanic Verses’ in 1989 and the leadar of Iran Khomeini was announced ‘he is an apostate’, the massacre of Sıvas and Maras. At the same time, Islam’s holy book as a Quran has a hatred nucleus and this...more
The late Harvard social scientist, Samuel Huntington, warns of the increasing threat of renewed conflicts originating in countries and cultures that base their traditions on religious faith and dogma. Moving past the issues of race and nationality as sources of future conflict, he cites the growing influence of a handful of major cultures—Western, Eastern Orthodox, Latin American, Islamic, Japanese, Chinese, Hindu, and African—in current struggles across the globe. His study underlines the impor...more

This is a really good and important book on international politics. It's been pretty influential within academe, but controversial as well. It's main thesis is something like this: In the post-Cold War world, global politics will largely be shaped by civilizational identities rather than political ideologies (which shaped the Cold War world). Thus, nations belonging to the same basic civilization--by which the author denotes a culture in its broadest sense, i.e. Islam, the West, etc.--will have...more
although compelling on the surface, this thesis seems a bit out of place, even for 1996 and would probably fit in a lot better had it been written in midst of the cold war. Huntington certainly can be given credit in this for pointing out the differences between "civilizations" as he defines them, but he seems to resist all evidence of the existence of pluralism in all "civilizations". his labels and generalizations are exactly that, just labels and generalizations that don't have much credence...more

In The Clash of Civilizations an old Cold Warrior remakes the complexity of human civilization into a Manichean battle of good (US and pals) vs. Evil (everyone else)! The profound ignorance and incompetence of this novel simply knows no bounds. This review is disjointed and a bit of rant, but I will be pointing out a few of the more glaring examples of factual inaccuracy and utter bullshit that pervade this "thesis". Despite being one of the world's oldest and most powerful civilizations, Iran i...more

كتاب يحمل تدليسا كبيرا لبعض الحقائق و لكنه مجال واسع لبناء رويه نقديه و فهم الاخر من منطلق هو نفسه لم يفهمه او فهم و اثار التظاهر بالعدم و الدفع بصور اخرى خدمه لشئ اخر
اثناء قراءتى لاي كتاب اثبت على جانب محايد الا اننى و بقراءه هجا الدي بين يدي لا استشعر احترام و ''تحضر'' الكاتب نهائيا .....خصوصا ادا كان يكتب عن موضوع بهده الاهميه و العمق

This book was written nearly two decades ago, and it was published before the several world events have happened in the past decade. Professor Huntington's prediction that every major conflict has its roots in the clash between/amongst civilisations with differing culture, ideology and most importantly, religion.

It may be a very hard book to read for nationalists, and especially with the recent debate in the UK whether UK should remain in the EU or no. This book remains very applicable in the c...more

يكفى الضجة العالمية اللى عملها الكتاب منذ خروجه عام 1996 وهو من الكتب التى تحدثت عن مستقبل العالم وخاصة بعد انهيار الاتحاد السوفيتى وبقاء أمريكا كقوة وحيدة وعظمى فى العالم ...وهنتنجتون كان قريب جدا من صانعى القرار فى أمريكا وقيل أن بوش وكونداليزا رايس والادارة الأمريكية تأثروا بكتاباته و كانت سببا لبروز خطة الشرق الاوسط الجديد اللى عملتها أمريكا .

والكتاب يتحدث عن أن البساط والهيمنة ستسحب من الغرب وستظهر قوى جديده بناء على صراعات جديدة حيث ان الحروب والصراعات بعد ذلك ستكون صراعات حضارات وليست دول...more

كما العادة..من قرأ الكتاب ليس كمن سمع عنه، و الغريب في الترجمة العربية لهذا الكتاب، أن مُقدمه، صاغ مقدمة حاول فيها تفنيذ فكرة الكتاب، بعد أربع سنوات من صدوره، و الغالب أنه حاول بناء مُقدمته على ما تمت كتابته حول نظرية "صراع الحضارات" دون أن يُكلف نفسه عناء قراءة الكتاب برؤية محايدة على الأقل.
"الحدود الدموية للإسلام" لا يُمكن أن ننكرها، بل إزداد العالم يقيناً بوجودها، و أصبحنا على مقربة من "الفتنة حرب داخل الإسلام" حسب نظرية جيل كيبل. لكن ليس هذا هو سبب إنتقاد صاحب المُقدمة لهنتنغتون، لأن المُقدم...more
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 IMO non-western cultures can be reformed to embrace "western" values like individual freedom and human rights, e.g. Japan and Taiwan, though such reforms could take decades and sometimes cost a lot of lives.

Samuel Phillips Huntington was an American political scientist who gained prominence through his "Clash of Civilizations"(1993, 1996) thesis of a new post-Cold War world order. Previously, his academic reputation had rested on his analysis of the relationship between the military and the civil government, his investigation of coups d'etat and for his more recent analysis of threats posed to the U....more
