Item description for Civilizations in Dispute: Historical Questions and Theoretical Traditions (International Comparative Social Studies) by Johann P. Arnason...

The growing interest in civilizations, both on the level of political controversy ("the clash of civilizations") and in the context of scholarly debates, calls for more theoretical reflection on the problems and perspectives central to this field of social inquiry. This volume contains a systematic and critical survey of classical and contemporary approaches to comparative civilizational analysis. It goes on to outline a theoretical model that draws on the work of historical sociologists as well as on comparative cultural and intellectual. Civilizations are analysed as multi-dimensional formations, with particular emphasis on cultural orientations, but also on the autonomous dynamics of political and economic institutions. The last chapter applies this line of argument to questions raised by critics of Eurocentrism and discusses the strengths and weaknesses of post-colonial theory.
