American scholar Samuel Huntington departs

Prominent American scholar and also influential political scientist, Dr. Samuel P. Huntington has passed away at 81. Although I do not agree with some of his worldviews, I must also say that many of his Realist insights into international relations and world affairs are productively thoughts-provoking. As a fairly fervent and critical reader of many of his books and other writings in the past two decades, I must place on public record my gratitude to a teacher who was honest in his beliefs.
