Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

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.

15 years later - still very relevant

I've heard about this book many times. Many references to it over the years. Finally, thanks to audible, I've also had the privilege to listen to it. For anyone interested in a view of the world - I recommend this book.
(not saying this is The true view of the world - but sure possible and thoughtful.)

Presciently Brilliant!

I realize this book has garnered considerable criticism in the post 9/11 world, but regardless, it is a masterpiece. Though perhaps not politically correct, many of the predictions it makes have already proven valid. I would place this book on a par with Thucydides' "Peloponnesian War" for its incisive and clear political insights. Though first published in 1996, it remains shockingly relevant over ten years on. Read it!
