The next wave of political confrontations will not be those of princes or nations, not focused on ideology or economics, but great clashes centered on cultures--a hammering of seven or eight distinct and powerful civilizations. The impacts will be felt most strongly on the edges (geographical fault lines) and will be very evident where they touch Islam. Each civilization is characterized by internal commonalities of history, language, culture, tradition, and religion--Huntington exposes the modern world with great erudition and insight. Paul Boehmer's reading is adequate; his voice sounds young, but his cadence is deliberate. This is a tape for learning. D.R.W. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
