The Clash of Ideologies

Middle Eastern Politics and American Security

Mark L. Haas

  • Offers one of the most comprehensive analyses in the literature of how ideologies systematically shape international relations, and which foreign policies states should implement to take advantage of these dynamics
  • Controversially asserts that that regime promotion by the US (i.e., the spread of liberalism in the Middle East) can be a major benefit to US security
  • Shows how alliances among ideological enemies are, paradoxically, often a product of ideological variables
