    Since the end of the Cold War, scholars of international politicshave searched for paradigms that can make powerful and parsimoniousclaims about conflict and cooperation in post Cold War globalpolitics.According to some, the everlasting struggle between rich andpoor countries has become the dominant division in world politics,meaning that the old North-South cleavage has superseded the Cold WarEast-West division. Others argue that global conflict has becomedominated by clashes between different civilizations or that thedominant mode of conflict in global politics is between liberaldemocracies and nondemocracies. Still others discern the rise of acounterhegemonic bloc of states seeking to challenge the dominant powerof the United States. One could argue that all of these views arecorrect on specific issues but that in general there is no singledimension that can explain global conflict since the end of the Cold War.
