Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Middle East Illusions offers chapters written by Chomsky just before the 2000 Palestinian Intifada and up through October 2002, when 9-11 and a prospective U.S. military campaign against Iraq add new pressures to age-old conflicts. The book also includes 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, which continue to define and deeply influence events in the Middle East today.

Book News Annotation:

The first five essays in Chomsky's new book on U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East are actually reprinted from his 1974 book , but the basic issues he raised in those essays, he believes, remain unresolved and not yet properly addressed. He supplements 1974's examination of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with more recent observations penned between 1997 and 2002 that, while still centered on questions of Israel and Palestine, tend to take a wider, more regional view of the problems of the Middle East and the negative effects of how the U.S. engages them.
