Description from the publisher:
The western world is moving beyond the confines of nation-states and towards the formation of a supra-national community. The Marxist world, threatened by ethno-national movements with disintegration, is going through a basic transformation and is in process of liberating itself from its intellectual legacy. The Muslim world is caught up between two trends: loyalty to the nation-state and to the wider loyalty of the ummah. The cold war is over, and yet – thanks to the clash of ideas and the conflict of ethnic and national loyalties – the world might be heading for a major re-shaping of its political map.
This study seeks to come into grips with the dilemma of nationalism versus internationalism in three major traditions of the world – Liberalism, Marxism, and Islam. The work underscores the necessity of a genuine international understanding and dialogue as a necessary step towards building a more peaceful world order.
