by Noam Chomsky - £21.99 Pluto Press (2002)
paperback ISBN 13: 9780745319803 | ISBN 10: 0745319807
This new, fully updated edition of Chomsky's dissection of terrorism explores the role of the US in the Middle East and reveals how the media are used to manipulate public opinion about what constitutes 'terrorism'. With several new chapters as well as the original sections on Iran and the bombing of Libya, this is a brilliant account of the workings of state terrorism by the world's foremost critic of US imperialism.
New chapters cover the second Palestinian Intifada - or war of stones - that began in October 2000; a detailed account of the impact that September 11 has had on US foreign policy in the Middle East; and a deconstruction of depictions and perceptions of terrorism since that date.
