Description

For anyone interested in foreign affairs, this book will catalyze debate, and not only for Mr. Huntington's concluding scenario for World War III. He sees how this could happen if the U.S. mishandles an increasingly xenophobic and truculent China. Chinese assertiveness, Huntington argues, rises out of its felt grievances against a relatively weakening West. After China, the gravest challenge to the West is resurgent Islamic identity. So what to do? The West should ensure the survival of its values within a stronger European-North American alliance that can offset the emerging Sino-Islamic grouping.

Samuel P. Huntington is a political scientist at Harvard and was a foreign policy aide to President Clinton.

Poor performance despite excellent work

Is there anything you would change about this book?

There is a major opportunity to match this work with a worthy reading performance.

What other book might you compare The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order to and why?

Anything by Francis Fukuyama

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Poor pronunciation and an effeminate tone detracted from important emphasis throughout. As the reader attempted to emphasize central points in the work, I thought his voice was going to fail him.

Did The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order inspire you to do anything?

Yes, it inspired me to study these subjects further.

Well written Treatise

It is long. It goes into the theories of cultural development based on religion, geographic issues, natural resources etc.

This book is not for the faint of heart looking for an easy read on Saturday night. It will take you many nights of listening, but ask yourself, "How much do I want to know, am I tough enough to go with the detail this book can give you?"

It is a college level course, I liked that about it, actually. I am tired of the easy namby pamby 7th grade reading level of the local papers/ internet newspapers which give only a fraction of information.

It is written from a man who is basically half liberal-half conservative (altho he voted for Kerry - see NYT interview with him), but who has sane viewpoints/theories that a conservative will understand & appreciate, even if not agreeing with some of them.
I am a conservative, but gives credit where credit is due.

A prince for our time.

The scope of this book is impressive, and is a great resourse for anyone wanting a global picture of international relations , and a predictor of how relations will unfold in the near and long term. I feel this book is devoid of the Ideologies of our time and sets out to portray a pragmatic and realistic view of our circumstances and challenges as a society. It filled a few holes in my study of history.

A must read for all!

This book was written pre-9/11 and predicts the circumstances leading up to that as well as the rise of ISIS. Thought-provoking and well-researched. Don't wait to get this. It will change how you look at world and national politics.

Great insights

This book is twenty years old and so far it seems to be doing a good job of predicting history

Wonderful Analysis

There is a great deal of value in this text whether or not you agree with the specifics of the conclusions offered. Wide ranging and backed by specifics the thought process of the author are provocative.

Changed my world view

I consider myself up to date on foreign relations issues but this book was a game changer for me. The depth of Huntington's analysis is impressive but the real kicker is that his approach to foreign affairs based on culture is, apparently, seldom considered. Wow! This is some piece of work.

Most of it was above my head, still good.

I'm a 4 year college grad with no specific background in this type of stuff. This book was pretty far over my head on a lot of topics. Still a good read and puts into perspective the foreign policy, wars, and politics that national leaders have to think about. Unless you are a history buff, some of the references will be lost on you. Still recommend, but there may be other books out there that are a little closer to the ground on the same topic.

Still as relevant today as it was 20 years ago!

Excellent book. Prophetic and Persuasive. The description of the possible break out of a Third World War in the South China Sea is too feasible to ignore given current developments there.
