History

With religion-driven fanaticism on the rise in many parts of the world, Talmiz Ahmad's book tracing the roots of messianic militarisms and their impact on contemporary politics is well timed. The book is meticulously researched and even-handed in its critique of the three religious tendencies involved in the clash of messianic militarisms. Ahmad, besides being a seasoned diplomat, is also a scholar on Islam and West Asia...The book will be a valuable addition to university libraries and is a must-read for students of international politics. John Cherian, Frontline As I finished reading the book, I thought of two other books Francis Fukuyama s The End of History and Samuel Huntington s The Clash of Civilizations. All three authors look for the big picture...Both Fukuyama and Huntington assume, without providing much corroborating evidence, the essential, inherent superiority of Western civilisation over others. Ambassador Talmiz Ahmad is refreshingly free from such an ego-centric predicament...In addition to being an industrious scholar, the author has spent most of his 35-year career in West Asia...Ahmad s historical narration of the genesis of the three militant Messianisms is of enduring value.
