Encyclopedic book articles
I've been having some success, I hope, in writing articles about both nonfiction and fictional books in a manner that makes them encyclopedia articles, rather than book reviews. In The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order, which is quite well developed, I have not just focused on the author's words and citations but added context.
Apologies, but I haven't yet read Fear of Freedom. Nevertheless, some of the ideas seem paralleling the ideas of human development in the Huntington book I just cited, Fukuyama's The End of History and the Last Man, etc. Glancing at the index to Huntington, the word "freedom" isn't mentioned. I'm going to scan the text further, but I think there is an important point that while concepts of freedom are key to Western cultures, not all are universal. If we can establish some synthesis here, perhaps in a freedom article, all the better.
