Reviews

"Here is the research front on relations between civilizations: A thoroughly dialogical immersion in debates on how these cultures writ large hybridize and shape contemporary global life."

- Iver B. Neumann, Professor of Russian Studies, Oslo University and the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs, Norway

"This volume represents a very timely and profound engagement with the concept of civilization, indispensable to anyone who has tried to think critically and constructively about this concept in international relations."

- Jens Bartelson, Professor of International Relations, University of Copenhagen

"Hall and Jackson's edited volume exposes the long and troubled history of one of the most frequently used and abused concepts in international relations - the concept of civilization. This erudite, sophisticated collection of essays represents a must-read for any scholar of international relations, both as an exploration of the conceptual basis for the West's troubled relation with the rest of the world, and as a theoretical blue print for future critical engagements with the foundations of our discipline."

- Aida A. Hozic, Professor of International Relations, University of Florida
