Description - Turning Back The Clock by Umberto Eco

After the Cold War, the 'Hot War' has made its comeback in Afghanistan and Iraq. Exhuming Kipling s 'Great Game', we have gone back to the clash between Islam and Christianity. The ghost of the Yellow Danger has been resurrected, the nineteenth-century anti-Darwin debate has been reopened, right-wing governments predominate. It almost seems like history, tired of the big steps forward it has taken in the past two millennia, has gone into reverse.
