Example text

I detail them below, but first let’s look at his argument in The Clash of Civilizations. The Clash In his book, Huntington argues that seven civilizational blocs are emerging from the ruins of the old cold war global order. “Peoples and countries with similar cultures are coming together,” he says. “Peoples and countries with different cultures are coming apart. Alignments defined by ideology and superpower relations are giving way to alignments defined by culture and civilization” (p. 125). These emerging civilizational blocs “are the ultimate human tribes, and the clash of civilizations is tribal conflict on a global scale” (p.

154). Although Huntington’s adjectives in this passage are as much slogans as precise terms of social description, anyone who has interacted with “Asians” or “Australians” will recognize that there is a grain of truth in these characterizations. However, they will also be able to think of exceptions among Asians and Australians they have met, and will realize that, if you watch them closely, individual Asians and Australians, like other human beings, vary their behavior in different contexts rather than robotically following a single script.

So it is with the Nuer. . 23 Samuel Huntington’s model of the world as composed of seven (or eight) civilizations, in which individual member-states look to their civilizational kin for support, bears a superficial resemblance to this anthropological abstraction developed in the first half of the twentieth century. On closer examination, though, its relative thinness quickly becomes apparent.
