Item description for False Prophets: The "Clash of Civilizations" and the Global War on Terror (The Past in the Present) by Richard Bonney...
Richard Bonney's illuminating and controversial new book takes as its subject the Christian/Muslim Clash of Civilizations thesis, which underpins contemporary US foreign policy. It gets beyond the stereotypes and demonstrates - through careful analysis of both sides of the debate - how the US response to 9/11 and the problematic interventions in Afghanistan and Iraq have suffered as a result of this neo-conservative influence on American foreign policy since 1945.
