Asabiyyah: What Ibn Khaldun, the Islamic father of social science, can teach us about the world today

A quarter of a century after the end of Communism swept away the ideological conflict of the ‘short 20th century’, a new world is once again taking shape, this time in the Middle East. But what does the crisis in the region, and its refugee exodus into Europe, signify for the future of the world? And why has the noble dream of nation-building failed? Focusing mainly on religion, ideology or economics, most analysis ignored one crucial factor: asabiyyah, or group feeling, something outlined six and a half centuries ago by a largely ignored Arab historian called Ibn Khaldun.
