Information

 Aandreas Harbsmeier: Udfordringer til de vestlige værdier (26. oktober 2006)
“Hvis man kan bedømme en bogs vigtighed på den kritik, den afstedkommer, må Huntingtons 10 år gamle ‘Civilisationernes Sammenstød’, der i dag udkommer på dansk, siges at være årtiets vigtigste.”

Lettre Internationale

 Samuel P. Huntington: Civilisationernes sammenstød? (nr.10, marts 2006, s.5-9)
“Et tesen om civilisationernes sammenstød blevt til virkelighe? Samuel Huntingtons stærk kontroversielle artikel danner udgangspunkt for diskussion og bringes her for første gang i i uddrag i dansk oversættelse.”

 Edward W. Said: Uvidenhedens sammenstød (nr.10, marts 2006, s.10-11)
“Samuel Huntingtons teori om civilisationernes sammenstød er forenklet og fordummende. Og den er for farlig til, at vi kan sidde den overhørig, mener Edward W. Said. Her tager han til genmæle.”

Politiken

 Huntington stillede de rigtige spørgsmå. Af Lea Wind-Friis (28. december 2008)
” Den afdøde professor blev (u)populær efter 11. september. Han gav forkerte svar på rigtige spørgsmål, siger Ole Wæver.”

 Nekrolog: Professor Nørd havde en rygrad af stål. Af Olav Hergel (30. december 2008)
” I 1993 forudsagde Samuel P. Huntington et ‘civilisationernes sammenstød’. Ordene blev efter 11.9.01 et signalement af en ny verdensorden.”

CounterPunch

 Vicente Navarro: Why Huntington and Beck are wrong (April 7/8, 2007)
“The problem with Huntington’s and Beck’s interpretations is that both assume the two civilizations have been in conflict for the past 50 years. But this assumption is wrong.”

 M. Shahid Alam: Peddling civilizational wars: A critique of Samuel Huntingon (February 28, 2002)
“Why has The Clash dominated public discourse in the West despite its flawed theory, lack of empirical support, and its espousal of hatred as the necessary foundation of cultural identity?”

Journal of World-Systems Research

 David Skidmore: Huntington’s Clash revisited (Vol.4, No.2, Fall 1998)
“Big bets, whether in poker or in academics, often fail. Such is the fate of Huntington’s ambitious but seriously flawed effort to chart a new direction in thinking about the future of international relations in the post-Cold War period.”

Monthly Review

 Gilbert Achcar interviewed by David Barsamian (June 2003)
Gilbert Achcar is author of the book The clash of barbarisms: September 11 and the making of the new world disorder.
“What we are seeing in this kind of clash is not, therefore, a clash of civilizations or features of civilizations clashing, but a clash of those kinds of barbaric potentials that every civilization include, whether Islamic or Western.”

MR Zine

 Hisham Bustani: The delusion of the ‘Clash of Civilizations’ and the ‘War on Islam’ (29/05/08)
“The clash of civilizations thesis portrays an imminent danger threatening the people of the North. This danger must be confronted and crushed at the source, in its place, before it expands and reaches ‘us’.”

The Nation

 Edward W. Said: The clash of ignorance (October 22, 2001)
“‘The Clash of Civilizations’ thesis is a gimmick like ‘The War of the Worlds’, better for reinforcing defensive self-pride than for critical understanding of the bewildering interdependence of our time.”

Socialist Review

 Mike Haynes: A war of civilisations (Issue 256, October 2001)
“We are fighting a war against the uncivilised world, claims the right wing. But, as Mike Haynes explains, it is about the assertion of US economic and military power.”
