The classic study of post-Cold War international relations, more relevant than ever in the post-9/11 world, with a new foreword by Zbigniew Brzezinski. Since its initial publication, The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order has become a classic work of international relations and one of the most influential books ever written about foreign affairs. An insightful and powerful analysis of the forces driving global politics, it is as indispensable to our understanding of American foreign policy today as the day it was published. As former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski says in his new foreword to the book, it “has earned a place on the shelf of only about a dozen or so truly enduring works that provide the quintessential insights necessary for a broad understanding of world affairs in our time.” Samuel Huntington explains 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. Events since the publication of the book have proved the wisdom of that analysis. The 9/11 attacks and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have demonstrated the threat of civilizations but have also shown how vital international cross-civilization cooperation is to restoring peace. As ideological distinctions among nations have been replaced by cultural differences, world politics has been reconfigured. Across the globe, new conflicts—and new cooperation—have replaced the old order of the Cold War era. The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order explains how the population explosion in Muslim countries and the economic rise of East Asia are changing global politics. These developments challenge Western dominance, promote opposition to supposedly “universal” Western ideals, and intensify intercivilization conflict over such issues as nuclear proliferation, immigration, human rights, and democracy. The Muslim population surge has led to many small wars throughout Eurasia, and the rise of China could lead to a global war of civilizations. Huntington offers a strategy for the West to preserve its unique culture and emphasizes the need for people everywhere to learn to coexist in a complex, multipolar, muliticivilizational world.

The end of the Cold War, which occurred early in the 1990s, brought joy and freedom to millions. But it posed a difficult question to the world's governments and to the academics who studied them: how would world order be remade in an age no longer dominated by the competing ideologies of capitalism and communism? Samuel P. Huntington was one of the many political scientists who responded to this challenge by conceiving works that attempted to predict the ways in which conflict might play out in the 21st century, and in The Clash of Civilizations he suggested that a new kind of conflict, one centred on cultural identity, would become the new focus of international relations. Huntington's theories, greeted with scepticism when his book first appeared in the 1990s, acquired new resonance after 9/11. The Clash of Civilizations is now one of the most widely-set and read works of political theory in US universities; Huntington's theories have also had a measurable impact on American policy. In large part, this is a product of his problem-solving skills. Clash is a monument to its author's ability to generate and evaluate alternative possibilities and to make sound decisions between them. Huntington's view, that international politics after the Cold War would be neither peaceful, nor liberal, nor cooperative, ran counter to the predictions of almost all of his peers, yet his position – the product of an unusual ability to redefine an issue so as to see it in new ways – has been largely vindicated by events ever since.

Der amerikanische Politikwissenschaftler Samuel P. Huntington stellt in seinem Buch die Frage nach den weltpolitischen Entwicklungen im 21. Jahrhundert. Statt eines harmonischen Zusammenwachsens in einer zunehmend vernetzten Welt sieht er neue Konflikte globalen Ausmaßes entstehen: Konflikte zwischen den Kulturen. Die Weltpolitik des 21. Jahrhunderts wird nicht mehr von Auseinandersetzungen ideologischer oder wirtschaftlicher Natur bestimmt sein, so Huntingtons These, sondern vom Konflikt zwischen Völkern und Volksgruppen unterschiedlicher kultureller Zugehörigkeit. Der Faktor Kultur wird folglich in der internationalen Politik massiv an Bedeutung gewinnen. Mit „Clash of Civilisations“ hat Huntington eine neue Formel für die künftige Weltordnung formuliert. Provokant, spannend und international heftig diskutiert – ein Muss für jeden politisch interessierten Leser.

Essay from the year 2005 in the subject Politics - Political Systems - General and Comparisons, grade: 1,7, University of Munster, 7 entries in the bibliography, language: English, comment: Book rewiew, analysing certain aspects of Huntingtons "clash of civilizations" Essay for the masters course "International Relation Theory" at the UTs of Munster and Twente, abstract: Samuel P. Huntington was born in 1927 and is at the moment director of the John- Olin Institute for strategic studies at the University of Harvard. He was the author of an article, first published in the Foreign Affairs magazine, which has, according to Russel, Oneal and Cox ( 2000, p.584) "turned into one of the most influential recent books on international relations." This article was called "the Clash of Civilizations?" and afterwards was extended (in 1996) to his book, called "The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of the World Order." This book was meant to be seen as a response to his highly polarising and provocative article mentioned above. In it, he tries to give answers to the questions which arose from his article and tries to clarify his standpoints and claims to underpin his thesis. Samuel P. Huntington has given new currency to the notion of a clash of civilizations. His 1993 article on the topic in Foreign Affairs and his book following this article has gained a global audience. Huntington argues that the bipolar division of the world based on ideology is no longer relevant. The world was entering a new period of intense conflict among civilizations. He states: "It is my hypothesis that the fundamental source of conflict in this new world will not be primarily ideological or primarily economic. The great divisions among humankind and the dominating source of conflict will be cultural. Nation states will remain them most powerful actors in world affairs, but the principal conflicts of global politics will occur between nations and groups of different civilizations. The c"

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Allgemein, , Veranstaltung: Interkulturelles Kompetenztraining. Theorie-Übung-Reflexion, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der 11. September 2001 war für den amerikanischen Politikwissenschaftler Samuel P. Huntington gewiss genauso ein schrecklicher und unvergesslicher Tag wie für das ganze amerikanische Volk. Gleichwohl dürfte sich Huntington dabei in seinen Voraussagen, die er erstmalig 1993 in einem Artikel in einer Zeitschrift und drei Jahre später in einem Buch mit dem Titel „Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order“ getätigt hatte, bestätigt gefühlt haben. Er proklamierte darin, dass die Politik im 21.Jahrhundert von einem Zusammenprall (bis hin zum Krieg) der Kulturen geprägt sein werde. Huntington spricht dabei gar von einem möglichen Untergang des Westens. Was veranlasste ihn zu diesen Aussagen und was versteht er genau unter Kulturen bzw. wie differenziert er diese? Um diese Frage zu beantworten, ist es nötig, sich seine Definitionen von „Zivilisation“ und „Kultur“ vor Augen zu führen und das Kernstück seines Werkes, sein entworfenes Zivilisationsparadigma, zu untersuchen. Mit diesem Hintergrund werde ich in dieser Arbeit der Frage nachgehen, inwieweit Huntingtons Welthypothese hilfreich ist, mit dem Blick auf den Status Quo (2012). Vorweg sei gesagt, dass das Echo bei Erscheinen des Artikels und des Buches in der Welt riesig war und der populistische Titel in den folgenden Jahren in vielen Artikeln zu oft vollkommen differenten Thematiken missbraucht wurde. Bei dem Wissen um die Sensibilität dieses Themas scheinen solche Beiträge unpassend. Positiv hervorzuheben sind dagegen Aktionen wie dem YouTube-Video „Stop the Clash of Zivilisations“ der künstlerischen Internetbewegung „avaaz“, die damit sogar den YouTube Award 2007 in der Kategorie „Politik“ gewann.

Tom Marcus wurde vom MI5 rekrutiert, um sein Land zu schützen – undercover gegen interne und externe Bedrohungen, den Terror und zum Schutz der größten Geheimnisse des Landes. Tägliche Entscheidungen, die Leben oder Tod bedeuten. Ein nie enden wollender Kampf, den viele seiner Kollegen nicht überleben sollten. Bei einem seiner Einsätze nahm er die Identität eines verwahrlosten Obdachlosen an – und stellte bei einem Verdächtigen außergewöhnliche Verhaltensweisen fest. Zeichen, die vielleicht niemand außer einem ausgebildeten Agenten bemerkt hätte. Tom ließ das Haus stürmen. Gefunden wurden einige Gewehre und sechs selbstgebaute Bomben. Diese hätten, so zeigte sich später, 60 Schulkinder töten sollen, die sich auf der Rückfahrt von einer Klassenfahrt befanden. Dieser fesselnde Bericht über einen Krieg, der um unserer Sicherheit willen geführt wird, weiht uns in eines der am besten behüteten Geheimnisse Europas ein – den britischen Geheimdienst MI5.
