The New Military Humanism: Lessons From Kosovo

by Noam Chomsky - £18.99  Pluto Press (1999)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780745316338 | ISBN 10: 0745316336

The crisis in Kosovo has excited passion and visionary exaltation of a kind rarely witnessed. The events have been portrayed as a 'New Humanism,' timed fortitously with a new milllenium, which will displace the crass and narrow interest politics of a mean-spirited past.
 
But is this 'New Humanism' guided by power interests or by humanitarian concern? Is the resort to force undertaken 'in the name of principles and values' as professed? Or are we witnessing something more familiar?
 
The New Military Humanism is Chomsky at his best: a brilliant and revealing analysis, offering lessons for us all and sounding a clear alarm which none should ignore.
