Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The volatile Middle East is the site of vast resources, profound passions, frequent crises, and long-standing conflicts, as well as a major source of international tensions and a key site of direct U.S. intervention.Two of the most astute analysts of this part of the world are Noam Chomsky, the preeminent critic of U.S, foreign policy, and Gilbert Achcar, a leading specialist of the Middle East who lived in that region for many years. In their new book, Chomsky and Achcar bring a keen understanding of the internal dynamics of the Middle East and of the role of the United States, taking up all the key questions of interest to concerned citizens, including such topics as terrorism, fundamentalism, conspiracies, oil, democracy, self determination, anti-Semitism, and anti-Arab racism, as well as the war in Afghanistan, the invasion and occupation of Iraq, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the sources of U.S. foreign policy.This book provides the best readable introduction for all who wish to understand the complex issues related to the Middle East from a perspective dedicated to peace and justice. It is not an interview book, but rather a carefully planned and orchestrated dialogue with two experts, skillfully edited by Stephen R. Shalom, professor at William Patterson University.

Synopsis:

In their new book, Chomsky and Achcar bring a keen understanding of the internal dynamics of the Middle East and of the role of the United States, covering such topics as terrorism, fundamentalism, conspiracies, oil, and democracy as well as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Synopsis:

This expanded paperback edition includes many new pages on topics that will deeply affect the Middle East and the course of a new American presidential administration. The new coverage offers fresh analysis of the U.S. troop surge, intensifying divisions among Palestinian factions, the deepening crisis in Lebanon, the National Intelligence Estimate's report on weapons in Iran, and the effect of a new U.S. presidency on the Middle East.When first published in 2006, this book became the most complete and up-to-date statement on Middle East politics from these two influential analysts. In this new paperback edition Chomsky and Achcar help us understand the latest developments in historical perspective. They take up all the key questions of interest to concerned citizens, including terrorism, fundamentalism, conspiracies, oil, democracy, self-determination, anti-Semitism, and anti-Arab racism, as well as the war in Afghanistan, the invasion and occupation of Iraq, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the sources of U.S. foreign policy.This book provides the best readable introduction for all who wish to understand the complex issues related to the Middle East from a perspective dedicated to peace and justice.
