Very good book about the future of international relations - simple thesis that the main axes around which world politics will turn will be the 7 or 8 civilizational blocs. Kind of a reaction against the End of History notion of Fukuyama's that the world is gradually becoming more like us - free and capitalist. This instead suggests very distinct cultural entities in a more multi-polar world, perhaps peacefully coexisting as long as no fights are picked along the fault lines where they intersect. Unfortunately that's where most conflicts arise.
