This book reveals the intricacies of inter-civilizational relations between Northern and Southern countries and details the resultant mistreatment of Southern nations. It discusses the North’s centralizing and condescending approach that has greatly harmed both stability and peace in the modern world. Starting with the author’s own personal experience and proceeding to offer a succinct historical overview, the West’s blatant disregard for many contributions from other human civilizations – including the Arab-Islamic civilization – appear in stark contrast. Having worked in the fields of diplomacy and culture for decades, the author aims to remind this generation of Arabs of their own heritage, hitherto overshadowed by conflicts and neglect of their role in building human civilization. The author calls for building bridges instead of erecting barriers and a completely new approach to relations between the North and the South; a message which resonates globally. «Bridges, not Barriers» is already in circulation in Arabic, German, French, Spanish, and Farsi.
