Samuel P. Huntington on World - Dictionary of Arguments
Brocker I 836
World/Huntington: in almost neo-realistic jargon, Huntington paints the picture of a world whose character is to be described as "multipolar and multicultural" (1) and thus contrasts ideological or political dicta as in the time of systemic confrontation until 1989. See State/Huntington, Culture/Huntington, Civilization/Huntington.
Brocker I 841
Thesis: While the Cold War forced the formation of a short-term political-ideological bloc as a function of order, states in the 21st century will orient themselves according to their affiliation to the

largest cultural areas. Those who see themselves in cultural proximity to a powerful core state will operate in political distance to countries foreign to culture. Cultural core states thus fill the deep regulatory vacuum left behind by the end of the Cold War. For cultures without a core state (see Civilisation/Huntington) there is thus the problem of a fundamental lack of order - for example in the case of Islamic or Latin American cultures. See World Order/Huntington, History/Huntington, Conflicts/Huntington.
