The necessity of a dialogue among the various rich and powerful civilizations that co-exist on our planet will be a looming international problem in the coming 21st century. A civilizational dialogue necessitates familiarity with major aspects of other civilizations such as religion, symbolism, myth in the spiritual domain, social structure and development, or political organization in the social and institutional spheres. Familiarity between civilizations would enable them, in the course of the dialogue, to identify shared beliefs and values which are the common aspects of humanity that unite us all. Dialogue of Civilization guides the reader through a deep analysis of different civilizational worlds. An indispensable book for students and professors of anthropology, political science, and foreign relations.

A contribution to Arab-Muslim-Western dialogue, this work underlines the hazardous consequences of the strategy of pre-emptive war on the aforementioned dialogue. According to the author, Huntingdon's Clash of the Civilizations has provoked a needless tension among peoples who are naturally keen on their cultures in this globalising world. The title also stresses the importance of intra- and inter-Arab dialogue which can foster tolerance, coexistence and world peace.

"Civilization" is a constantly invoked term. It is used by both politicians and scholars. How useful, in fact, is this term? Civilization and Its Contents traces the origins of the concept in the eighteenth century. It shows its use as a colonial ideology, and then as a support for racism. The term was extended to a dead society, Egyptian civilization, and was appropriated by Japan, China, and Islamic countries. This latter development lays the groundwork for the contemporary call for a "dialogue of civilizations." The author proposes instead that today the use of the term "civilization" has a global meaning, with local variants recognized as cultures. It may be more appropriate, however, to abandon the name "civilization" and to focus on a new understanding of the civilizing process.

At the start of the new millennium, the United Nations designated 2001 the 'Year of Dialogue among Civilizations'. This dialogue emerged after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, and changed much of the field of comparative education. The dialogue draws attention to deep-rooted cultural differences around the world which shape approaches to education. This book gives voice to outstanding scholars from three major Eastern civilizations - Chinese, Arabic and Indian - who have entered into dialogue with equally distinguished scholars from the West. One of the authors, Abdus Salam, was the first scientist from Pakistan to win the Nobel Prize in Physics. The themes of the book include challenges to knowledge in the late modern era; Eastern contributions to scientific knowledge; knowledge transfer across regions and civilizations; indigenous knowledge and modern education; and past and present influences from China. The book will contribute to an ongoing dialogue among civilizations, and enhance mutual understanding in the increasingly globalized society of the 21st Century.

Dialogue Among Civilizations explores the social, cultural, and philosophical underpinnings of 'civilizational dialogue' by asking questions such as: What is the meaning of such dialogue? What are its preconditions? Are there different trajectories for different civilizations? Is there also a dialogue between past and future involving remembrance? Exemplary voices range from Ibn Rushd, Goethe and Hafiz to Soroush, Gadamer, and the Mahatma Gandhi.

The explosion of new themes and working areas in social sciences in the aftermath of the Cold-War stimulated the 'cultural turn' of the previous decades and strengthened the position of the notion of 'civilisation' as a unit of analysis and locus of academic debate in the fields of history, philosophy, sociology, political science, and international relations. Given the fabricated and standardised nature of recent literature on political, economic and socio-cultural aspects of globalisation, it is crystal clear that historically and philosophically enlightened works written from the perspective of civilisational transformation will provide the much needed sophistication to conventional social science analyses trying to elucidate the organising principles of the global order. This novel collection represents a path-breaking work in the field of global/civilisational studies by constituting an interdisciplinary and theoretically-informed platform on which complex debates on the political, economic, socio-cultural, philosophical and ecological aspects of the global order could be conducted. The editors, Sadýk Ünay and Muzaffer þenel, managed to gather a truly original collection of articles from some of the leading authorities and promising academics on the theme of global orders with special reference to a civilisation transformation covering a wide spectrum in time and space from Antique Greece to the Islamic World, from Europe to the US and from East Asian history to current globalisations. Contributions rooted in the disciplines of history, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, political science and global political economy are craftsmanly combined to give the reader a holistic vision towards the possibility of multiple civilisational experiments and global orders. This book which boldly endeavours to transcend narrow boundaries of conventional academic approaches and Western-centric prejudices in various branches of social sciences will be a must-read for students of globalisation, cultural studies and macro-history.
