Hijacking Catastrophe: 9/11, Fear and the Selling of American Empire Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hijacking Catastrophe is a riveting collection of 28 interviews with leading political thinkers (Norman Mailer, Noam Chomsky, Scott Ritter, Medea Benjamin, Chalmers Johnson and others) that shows how the Bush administration has used the trauma of 9/11 and the war on terrorism to advance a radical and longstanding neoconservative plan for global geopolitical domination. At the same time. it will clarify the ideological vision that has driven US international and domestic policy since 9/11, and will examine the political strategies that have been used to sell this ideological vision to the American people.

Book News Annotation:

Jhally and Earp (both of the Media Education Foundation) originally conducted the 25 interviews collected here for an eponymous documentary on the use of the fear caused by the September 11th attacks to launch longstanding neoconservative plans to solidify and extend American global hegemony through military force. As one should expect, the majority of voices are of critics of foreign policy, including such well-known figures as New Left Review editor Tariq Ali, Indian anti-globalization activists Vandana Shiva, Noam Chomsky, former UN arms inspector Scott Ritter, MIT professor Noam Chomsky, novelist Norman Mailer, world system theorist Immanuel Wallerstein, and Pentagon Papers leaker Daniel Ellsberg.
