In 1993, political scientist Samuel Huntington turned conventional political wisdom on its head by arguing that future conflicts wouldnt be between nations but between civilizations notably, between the secular West and the fundamentalist Islamic world. At the same time, Eric S. Margolis was arguing the same point from a different position: that of a journalist reporting from within the Muslim world. American Raj is the culmination of Margolis years of boots-on-the-ground insight into the way the Muslim world really operates. It takes readers inside the thinking and worldview of anti-Western Islamic radicals throughout the Muslim world and identifies the historical, political, and religious factors that have played a major role in generating hostility toward the West. Employing the model of Britains imperialist hegemony in Asia, Margolis explores in fascinating detail whether the West risks a replay of the Raj experience or whether we face an entirely new world order.
