Christopher Coker will discuss the topic of his new book, The Rise of the Civilizational State.

Culture not ideology is now the primary currency of international politics. As the West struggles to defend the liberal world order (the product of its own cultural norms), China and Russia have reinvented themselves as civilizational states. Huntington has been vindicated but for reasons very different from those he offered. Civilizations don’t clash, civilizational states do. China is seeking to revise the world order; Russia challenges it head on; and Islamic fundamentalists seek to throw away the rule book altogether in pursuit of the Caliphate.

Christopher Coker is Professor of International Relations at the LSE, and Director of LSE IDEAS.

Michael Cox is Director of LSE IDEAS and Emeritus Professor of International Relations at LSE.
