Samuel P. Huntington (born 18 April 1927) is a political scientist and professor at Harvard University. He is best known for his article and subsequent book The Clash of Civilizations". The article suggested that the future conflicts in the international community would be between cultures and civilizations rather than the nation-state. By analyzing Cold-war conflicts and religious and cultural groups, his argument came into prevalence after the terrorist attacks on 11 September 2001.
Huntington is also known for his stance and analysis of immigration in the United States. His 2004 book Who Are We? The Challenges to America's National Identity focuses on the importance of culture and language in maintaining a national identity in the US; this is specifically in respect to the booming Latino-immigration, legal and otherwise.
