Author: Noam Chomsky
ISBN/UPC (if available): 0143030019
This latest work includes chapters written by Chomsky just before the 2000 Intifada and up through October 2002. As 9-11 and the US campaign against Iraq have added new pressures to long-standing conflicts, Chomsky's voice should be heard now more than ever.
How are the dynamics of the Israel-Palestinian conflict changing today? What are the responsibilities of the United States and Europe, especially in a post 9-11 era? How do we define terror? How do misperceptions define current policy and how can we look beyond them to find more viable solutions? These are among the many current and divisive question Noam Chomsky takes up in his newest book Middle East Illusions.
The book also includes the full text of Chomsky's earlier release, Pace in the Middle East? Reflections on Justice and Nationhood written during the crucial period spanning the Six-Day and 1973 wars which continue to define and deeply influence events today.
