Two Hours that Shook the World September 11, 2001: Causes & Consequences

Author : Fred Halliday

In Tow Hours that shook the world fred halliday expands on the many socio-cultural, religious and political problems that have plagued the middle east and central asia in the last half-century. Much has been written about global terrorism and the need to eliminate it but also about the divide between east and west the clash of civilisation. Halliday dispels the idea that the muslim and non-muslim worlds are poised for confict.

He explains the causes and rise of Islamic fundamentalism, how terror became an instrument of political and military conflict, and why seemingly well-educated and sane individuals are taking drastic action to voice their desperation. The burden of history is also invoked, as with the palestinian-Israeli situation, the festering malaise at the heart of middle Eastern consciousness and identity.

While halliday's book examines the causes of what has happened" it also provides a reasoned approach as to what the future may hold.

fred halliday is specialist on the politics of the middle east born in 1946 in the republic of ireland, he was edicated at the universities of Oxford and london. Since 1983 he has taught international relation at the london school of economics.
