This is the book we’re starting with. Let me show you guys what it says in the back cover:
Based on the author’s seminal article in Foreign Affairs, Samuel P. Huntington’s The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order is a provocative and prescient analysis of the state of world politics after the fall of communism. In this incisive work, the renowned political scientist explains how “civilizations” have replaced nations and ideologies as the driving force in global politics today and offers a brilliant analysis of the current climate and future possibilities of our world’s volatile political culture.
Heavy right? Yeah. I thought so too. I am really excited to set off on this but after skimming briefly through the book have also realised that I will need a dictionary and thesaurus LOL.
