Middle East Illusions Including Peace in the Middle East? Reflections on Justice and Nationhood

Heftet / 2003 / Engelsk
What are the roots of the Israel-Palestinian conflict? Why has the US-brokered "peace process" repeatedly failed to deliver peace? What are the prospects for a just resolution? What interests underlie current US strategic doctrines in the Middle East, especially in its redeclared "war on terrorism" after 9-11, and how do we look beyond them to find more peaceful and viable alternatives? These are among the current and long-standing questions Noam Chomsky takes up in this book, presenting recent chapters written by him about the myths behind the peace process, the second Palestinian Intifada (which began in September 2000 and continues today in defiance of Israeli repression) and the Bush administration's response to the September 11 attacks on the United States, including its drive toward another war with Iraq. Including the full text of Chomsky's earlier book, "Peace in the Middle East? Reflections on Justice and Nationhood", written during the crucial period spanning the Six-Day and 1973 wars, events that continue to define and deeply influence the world today, this work presents in-depth analysis covering several decades, making it a rich analysis of the region's geopolitics. Noam Chomsky is recognised internationally for his critical analysis of the Middle East. His thoroughly documented research draws on an immense range of sources including rarely discussed Hebrew texts, declassified government planning documents and other sources all too often overlooked in discussion of the US role in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

After 9/11 everything we were selling was an analysis of the Middle East. I've ordered 100 copies of Chomsky's new one, Middle East Illusions. -- Edward Nawotka * Publishers Weekly *It's impossible not to agree with him most of the time, and I've yet to find a book of his that doesn't sell. * The Bookseller *Acting as a deliberately provocative American conscience, Chomsky argues that Israel behaves like a colonial power in the Occupied Territories. His indictments of casual American hypocrisy and abuse of power are important, and his thesis that Israel's actions, far from enhancing its security, compromise it by polarizing opinion both within Israel and beyond is reasonable. * Sunday Times *This is a lucid, well-documented, first-class book that should be in every library. * Day By Day *In Middle East Illusions, Noam Chomsky proposes an alternative resolution to the conflict between Israel and Palestine and questions the territory's strategic and economic importance to the industrial powers, most notably the United States. * Z Magazine *An intriguing, scholarly analysis of fateful errors and lasting impacts. * The Bookwatch *Answers divisive questions about the Israeli-Arab policy and U.S. involvement in the Middle East. * Foreword Reviews *
