Clash of Civilizations? (in Swedish)

Publicerad 11 November, 2013

In the summer of 1993, Foreign Affairs published  “Clash of Civilizations?” by Samuel P. Huntington. “Clash of Civilizations?” launched the theory of a new world order after the Cold War where cultural and religious identities would be the primary sources of conflict. Huntington believed that future wars would mainly take place between the Western, Muslim and Confucian civilizations.

Few thinkers have provoked such criticism as Huntington did twenty years ago. Nevertheless, the critics did not succeed in dismissing his article as irrelevant. In the post 9/11 world where conflicts have largely taken place between various ethnical and cultural entities, Huntington’s thesis is still pertinent today. Therefore, the Stockholm Free World Forum has published a new edition of the article, translated into Swedish.

“[Clash of Civilizations?”] 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.”  Zbigniew Brzezinski, former U.S national security counselor
