OverviewIs the 'war on terrorism' winnable? If yes, how? Intelligent bombs in Iraq, humanitarian intervention in Kosovo. The USA never used the word 'war' to describe that. Now they are waging war against a nameless enemy. Why? Are Arabs, by definition, necessarily funadmentalist, the West's new enemy? In this timely book Noam Chomsky uses his impeccable knowledge of United States foreign policy in the Middle East and South Asia to shed light on the rapidly shifting balance of world power. His wide ranging comments on the new 'war on terrorism', Osama Bin-Laden, US involvement with Afghanistan and the long term implications of America's military attacks abroad are informed, perceptive and provocative. Speaking out against responding to violence with violence, Chomsky hopes that an aroused public within the more free and democratic societies can direct policies towards a much more humane and honourable course.
