'Chomsky is one of the radical heroes of our age. A towering intellect' Guardian
The Middle East is a site of vast resources, profound passions, frequent crises, and long-standing conflicts - and, of course, a key site of direct US intervention.
In Perilous Power Noam Chomsky and Gilbert Achcar bring a keen understanding of the internal dynamics of the Middle East and of the role of the US, exploring the key questions of interest to concerned citizens, including:
* Anti-Arab racism
* The invasion and occupation of Iraq
* The Israeli-Palestinian conflict
Timely, erudite and incisive, Perilous Power provides the best readable introduction for all who wish to understand the complex issues related to the Middle East from a perspective dedicated to peace and justice.
