Surveying the history of the Islamic world from its origins to the present time, Palmer (history, East Carolina U.) has constructed this narrative primarily for the purpose of arguing that Islam is essentially a civilization that has failed in the project of modernization. That, and not imperial or other transgressions by the West, is the reason that Islamism of Osama Bin Laden resonates within the Islamic world and sets it in conflict with the forms of modernization known as Americanism. He predicts years of conflict that will only end when the world has converted to Islam or the West has been able to impose modernism on the Islamic world.
