In this sequel to his equally authoritative Postmodern Imperialism, Walberg attempts to bridge the East-West gap, not through a reconciliatory discourse, but through a critical reading of history. He juxtaposes religion and ideology using a methodological and epistemological critique, a style that is both crucial and in some ways, incomparable. This volume should serve as a gateway to understanding Islam, and its location in the emerging new political dynamics, resulting from the bankruptcy of capitalism, and the lack of any other convincing alternatives.
Walberg's book is an essential read, both revealing and very inspiring. It is a thought-provoking and informative book. Walberg's analysis incorporates the experiences of the Other in a new dialectical approach to international relations. Brought up in the West, he has lived in the East, and is endowed with a cross-civilizational knowledge of the world.
Here he describes globalization and imperialism from the point of view of Islamic civilization, seeing it as inheriting the role which Communism once had as the main opponent of western hegemony, but with important differences that are not a derivation of western civilization itself. A convincing argument and a must-read for anyone interested in the anatomy of labyrinthine imperialism. The Arab Spring is really an Islamic one and the logical result of a century and a half of imperialist intrigues to incorporate the Middle East and Central Asia into the imperial project.
How did this come about? What are the chances of the Muslim world asserting an independent position in the face of American empire and the rising non-imperial world bloc, BRICS? Finally, the effects of developments in the Muslim world on western political events, which are increasingly inspired by the Middle East, including the BDS movement. Get A Copy. Paperback , pages.
