As the Cold War faded into history, it appeared to have been replaced by a new conflict – between Islam and the West. Or so we are told. After the events of 9/11 and the advent of the ‘war on terror’, this narrative seemed prophetic. But, as Peter Oborne reveals in this masterful new analysis, the concept of an existential clash between the two is a dangerous and destructive fantasy.
With murderous attacks on Muslims taking place from Bosnia in 1995 to China today, Oborne dismantles the falsehoods that lie behind them, and he opens the way to a clearer and more truthful mutual understanding that will benefit us all in the long run.
