The Clash Of Civilizations

In 1993 the esteemed journal FOREIGN AFFAIRS published an article entitled “The Clash of Civilizations?” by Samuel P. Huntington. According to the journal’s editors it went on to generate more discussion than anything they had published since the Second World War.

In the article, Huntington posed the question whether conflicts between civilizations would dominate the future of world politics. In the book, he gives the answer, showing not only how clashes between civilizations are the greatest threat to world peace but also how an international order based on civilizations is the best safeguard against war. Since September 11, his thesis has seemed even more prescient and acute.

 

About The Author

Samuel Phillips Huntington (April 18, 1927 – December 24, 2008) was an American political scientist, adviser and academic. He spent more than half a century at Harvard University, where he was director of Harvard’s Center for International Affairs and the Albert J. Weatherhead III University Professor.

During the presidency of Jimmy Carter, Huntington was the White House Coordinator of Security Planning for the National Security Council. He is best known for his 1993 theory, the “Clash of Civilizations”, of a post-Cold War new world order. He argued that future wars would be fought not between countries, but between cultures, and that Islamic extremism would become the biggest threat to world peace.

Huntington is credited with helping to shape U.S. views on civilian-military relations, political development, and comparative government
