Editorial Reviews

Review

'This passionate and elegant work is a vigorous antidote to a constellation of discourses steeped in the Weltanschauung that the title of Samuel Huntington's infamous book encapsulates so well. Arshin Adib-Moghaddam's reflections are a stimulating contribution to Edward Said's legacy of radical critique of all essentialist constructions of otherness.'- Prof. Gilbert Achcar, author of The Arabs and the Holocaust and (with Noam Chomsky) Perilous Power: The Middle East and US foreign policy 'What Adib-Moghaddam has done is to establish an exceptionally powerful refutation of clashing civilizations. Eloquently, rigorously and imaginatively, he traces and critiques genealogies of binary and simple oppositional thought and argues that the future of the world depends on our accepting and understanding complexities and internal oppositions.'-Prof. Stephen Chan, 2010 International Studies Association (ISA) Eminent Scholar in Global Development 'Eloquent, powerful, incisive and impressive in its range, A Metahistory of the Clash of Civilisations is a masterly work of critical deconstruction in the finest tradition of Michel Foucault and Edward Said. For anyone wishing to better understand the current state of international politics, this book is absolutely essential.'-Richard Jackson, Secretary of the British International Studies Association (BISA) --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
