Synopses & Reviews
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.
