Format: Paperback
In this agitated time of Arab resentment raising its head and of the ensuing American riposte, this book goes to the heart of the matter : the global failure of communication between civilizations.
After defining the several civilizations on the present scene by their anthropological, economic and scriptural building blocks, Dr Ankerl goes on to show how the West, in particular the Anglo-Saxon West, has systematically tried to infiltrate other civilizations and has denied them partnership status. "West is West and East is not."
The book ends with a call to a world-wide forum of the present day civilizations in order not only to preserve their identity but also to further global equitability, the only remedy in the end against the many forms of local violence our generation is witnessing.
I feel that Dr Ankerl, who is an internationally known and respected sociologist, offers the reader one of the best books on the subject of global communication. Its conceptual framework and degree of informativeness are impressing.
