What People are Saying About This

Christopher Davidson

This conceptually brilliant book serves as a detailed survey of various 'frontier states' likely to be involved in any future clash of civilizations. It does not dwell on the usual suspects of the Middle East. Instead, it focuses on other states with either large Muslim populations or fragmented religious communities, particularly those suffering from such destabilizing forces as weak economies or significant external penetration.
