Inside Lebanon: Journey to a Shattered Land with Noam and Carol Chomsky

by Edited by Assaf Kfoury
£11.99   paperback  Monthly Review Press, U.S (2007)

Inside Lebanon: Journey to a Shattered Land with Noam and Carol Chomsky by Edited by Assaf Kfoury In May 2006, Noam and Carol Chomsky visited Lebanon for the first time - just two months before Israel unleashed a new military campaign against both Lebanon and Palestine. During their eight-day trip, they toured refugee camps and a former Israeli prison and torture compound; met with political leaders - including the pro-government coalition, the opposition, as well as others; and Noam conducted interviews and gave public lectures on U.S. imperialism and the imminent crises facing the Middle East.
 
Inside Lebanon documents Noam and Carol Chomsky's journey and situates it within the tragically altered context of Lebanon and Palestine before and after the war of 2006. Noam Chomsky's essays provide the background and framework for understanding the role of U.S. politics, power and policies in these conflicts. Chomsky examines how the United States wages war and imposes world domination while presenting itself as the righteous protector of democracy. Ironically, U.S. efforts at imperial control generate conflict and crises within the region while undermining the very democracy they claim to promote.
 
Inside Lebanon also includes essays, diaries, and photographs by Irene Gendzier, Assaf Kfoury, Jennifer Loewenstein, Fawwaz Traboulsi, Hanady Salman, Rasha Salti, Mona el-Farra, Laila el-Haddad, and Carol Chomsky. Collectively, their contributions illuminate the region-wide conflict, of which Lebanon is only one piece. It servces as a record of events during the war, while linking conflicts on the ground to the global order.
