Product Details

Praise

“Ali’s style is vigorous, his narrative compelling, showing that the short-term, self-interested and oil-greedy policies of the British and Americans in such countries as Egypt, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Iran must make our much-vaunted ideals of democracy and equity seem like a bad joke.”—Karen Armstrong, The Times

The Clash of Fundamentalisms is well worth reading … it shows that the harshest critics of fundamentalism are often exponents of a rival fundamentalism.”—John Gray, Independent

“In this timely and important book, Tariq Ali puts the events of September 11 into sweeping historical perspective. As we have come to expect from him, he is lucid, eloquent, literary, and painfully honest, as he dissects both Islamic and Western fundamentalism.”—Howard Zinn

“It will not open doors at the White House because it makes for uncomfortable reading … a wide-ranging and powerfully argued critique, that gives pause for thought.”—Financial Times

“… urbane, highly intelligent and vividly written.”—Richard Sennett, Times Literary Supplement

“The book is an outstanding contribution to our understanding of the nightmare of history from which so many people are struggling to awake, and deserves serious engagement and consideration. Ali broadens our horizons, geographically, historically, intellectually and politically … His mode of history telling is lyrical and engaging, humane and passionate.”—Anthony Arnove, The Nation

“[Ali] finds little to distinguish between the organised violence of the United States and that of those who oppose it …”—Sydney Morning Herald
