About the book:

What are the roots of the Israel-Palestinian conflict? Why has the US-brokered "peace process" repeatedly failed to deliver peace? What are the prospects for a just resolution? What interests underlie current US strategic doctrines in the Middle East, especially in its redeclared "war on terrorism" after 9-11, and how do we look beyond them to find more peaceful and viable alternatives? These are among the current and long-standing questions Noam Chomsky takes up in this book, presenting recent chapters written by him about the myths behind the peace process, the second Palestinian Intifada (which began in September 2000 and continues today in defiance of Israeli repression) and the Bush administration's response to the September 11 attacks on the United States, including its drive toward another war with Iraq. Including 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, events that continue to define and deeply influence the world today, this work presents in-depth analysis covering several decades, making it a rich analysis of the region's geopolitics.Noam Chomsky is recognised internationally for his critical analysis of the Middle East. His thoroughly documented research draws on an immense range of sources including rarely discussed Hebrew texts, declassified government planning documents and other sources all too often overlooked in discussion of the US role in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
