Elaborate Description

Great book which describes why many conflicts happen around the world. Civilizations are a type of identity that have no precise boundary made up of values, ideas, and other similarities between people. A civilizational divide apparently usually makes it easier to create an "us" versus "them" argument. When one culture starts to impose values on another culture, a conflict is likely to occur as the values differ. Although the book is generally well written, it has a slight problem when writing about topics with extreme detail. The general topics and their explanations are well written, but the individual conflicts have poor transitions and little time to get acquainted with events.
