    Another typo. Should be zynisch.

    American Heritage dict.:
    Sinicism - A custom or trait peculiar to the Chinese. ETYMOLOGY: From Sinic, Chinese, from Medieval Latin Sinicus, from Late Latin Sinae, the Chinese. See Sino-.

    Huntington[']s geopolitical arrangement is a multipolar world consisting of Western, Latin American, African, Islamic, Sinic, Hindu, Orthodox, Japanese, and Buddhist civilizations....
    the distinction between Sinic, Buddhist, and Japanese civilizations is not so clear. Sinic civilization, according to Huntington, is Confucian and largely influenced by Chinese culture.... The difference between Buddhist and Sinic civilizations appears to be more political than cultural (and therefore civilization-based).

    Die zukünftig weltpolitisch relevanten Kulturen sind nach Huntington der christliche Westen (gekennzeichnet durch Säkularismus, Pluralismus, Demokratie, Marktwirtschaft, Rechtsstaatlichkeit), die chinesisch-konfuzianische Kultur ("sinisch"), die islamische, die japanische, die hinduistische, die russisch-orthodoxe, die hispanisch-katholisch- lateinamerikanische und die südafrikanische Kultur.

    Again, not a typo but an uncommon word. American Heritage lists Sinicize and Sinicism but not Sinic except in an etymology, which suggests that it may be an obsolescent form dusted off by Huntington et al. It's decipherable by educated speakers because of the Latin prefix 'Sino-' (Chinese), but in both English and German it's uncommon enough that most writers add a parenthetical explanation.
