Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[T]he perspectives presented in this book shed an interesting new light on the myths-making processes underpinning the notion of a clash of civilizations. This work moves the debate away from sterile discussions about civilizations and highlights instead the value of analysing political myths as structuring and being structured by the social imaginary of specific political communities." - Frederic Volpi, University of St Andrews; Journal of Islamic Studies, vol 23, no 1, January 2012
