Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

+El impacto de las atrocidades terroristas del 11 de septiembre de 2001 fue tan abrumador que la identificacion que acaba de darse es redundante: basta con decir 11-S. Esta generalmente admitido que el mundo ha entrado en una nueva era en la que todo sera distinto: La era del terror. Sin lugar a dudas, el 11-S ocupara un lugar preeminente en los anales del terrorismo, aunque deberiamos pensar detenidamente por que es asi. Cualquier persona familiarizada con la historia y la actualidad sabe que la razon no reside, lamentablemente, en la dimension de los crimenes, sino mas bien en la eleccion de victimas inocentes. Cuales seran las consecuencias es algo que depende sustancialmente de como interpreten los ricos y poderosos esta demostracion dramatica de que ya no son inmunes a las atrocidades como las que ellos infligen a los demas, y de como decidan reaccionar. En este sentido, merece la pena considerar varios factores: I) la era del terror no era inesperada. II) la guerra contra el terror declarada el 11 de septiembre no es ninguna novedad, y el modo en que se llevo a cabo en un pasado muy reciente no deja de ser instructivo en nuestros dias. Noam Chomsky
