A New Generation Draws the Line: Kosovo, East Timor and the Standards of the West

A New Generation Draws the Line: Kosovo, East Timor and the Standards of the West Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The conflicts in Kosovo and East Timor, looked at side-by-side by Noam Chomsky, starkly illuminate the strategies of the Western powers in the new century. Chomsky convincingly argues that humanitarianism was not the moving force behind NATO’s intervention in Yugoslavia, and that there, as in East Timor, strategic concerns were dominant while the fate of the civilian population was incidental.

Synopsis:

An appraisal of the Wests's responses (or lack thereof) to two international crises, the situations in Yugoslavia and East Timor, and of the strategic humanitarianism that defines the West's role in the current world arena.
