La nouvelle question d Orient
Dans cet essai, Georges Corm entreprend, à la suite de ses précédents ouvrages, une nouvelle plongée historique dans le destin tragique des sociétés de l'Est de la Méditerranée et du monde arabe, carrefour stratégique et géopolitique convoité par les grandes puissances coloniales depuis le XIXe siècle. Une vaste littérature avait été produite à cette époque sur la " question d'Orient ", alors qu'il s'agissait en fait des rivalités implacables entre puissances européennes avides de se partager les vastes territoires de l'Empire ottoman. Cet ouvrage rétablit les continuités et les ruptures entre cette ancienne question d'Orient et la " nouvelle question d'Orient ", débutant après la Seconde Guerre mondiale et donnant naissance à son tour à des violences ininterrompues, aujourd'hui à leur paroxysme. Georges Corm dénonce aussi bien les tendances hégémoniques de l'Alliance atlantique que le " chaos mental " qui s'est souvent installé à ses yeux auprès des grands décideurs et dans les analyses des médias dominants pour légitimer à nouveau les interventions des puissances occidentales en Orient. Celles-ci ne sont qu'un rebondissement amplifié de l'ancienne question d'Orient, leur cadre intellectuel étant aujourd'hui actualisé par la théorie du " choc des civilisations ", héritage de l'ancien racisme de nature coloniale. Le développement exponentiel du terrorisme en provenance de cette partie du monde est le résultat de ce dérèglement de la raison. Il peut se comparer aux effets que produit le dérèglement climatique en termes de catastrophes naturelles, elles-mêmes dues à une déraison économique et consumériste que rien ne semble pouvoir arrêter.
What Kind of Creatures Are We
Noam Chomsky is widely known and deeply admired for being the founder of modern linguistics, one of the founders of the field of cognitive science, and perhaps the most avidly read political theorist and commentator of our time. In these lectures, he presents a lifetime of philosophical reflection on all three of these areas of research to which he has contributed for over half a century. In clear, precise, and non-technical language, Chomsky elaborates on fifty years of scientific development in the study of language, sketching how his own work has implications for the origins of language, the close relations that language bears to thought, and its eventual biological basis. He expounds and criticizes many alternative theories, such as those that emphasize the social, the communicative, and the referential aspects of language. Chomsky reviews how new discoveries about language overcome what seemed to be highly problematic assumptions in the past. He also investigates the apparent scope and limits of human cognitive capacities and what the human mind can seriously investigate, in the light of history of science and philosophical reflection and current understanding. Moving from language and mind to society and politics, he concludes with a searching exploration and philosophical defense of a position he describes as “libertarian socialism,” tracing its links to anarchism and the ideas of John Dewey, and even briefly to the ideas of Marx and Mill, demonstrating its conceptual growth out of our historical past and urgent relation to matters of the present.
The volatile Middle East is the site of vast resources, profound passions, frequent crises, and long-standing conflicts, as well as a major source of international tensions and a key site of direct US intervention. Two of the most astute analysts of this part of the world are Noam Chomsky, the preeminent critic of U.S, foreign policy, and Gilbert Achcar, a leading specialist of the Middle East who lived in that region for many years. In their new book, Chomsky and Achcar bring a keen understanding of the internal dynamics of the Middle East and of the role of the United States, taking up all the key questions of interest to concerned citizens, including such topics as terrorism, fundamentalism, conspiracies, oil, democracy, self-determination, anti-Semitism, and anti-Arab racism, as well as the war in Afghanistan, the invasion and occupation of Iraq, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the sources of U.S. foreign policy. This book 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.

The Globalization of War
America's hegemonic project in the post 9/11 era is the "Globalization of War" whereby the U.S.-NATO military machine coupled with covert intelligence operations, economic sanctions and the thrust of "regime change" is deployed in all major regions of the world. The threat of pre-emptive nuclear war is also used to black-mail countries into submission. This "Long War against Humanity" is carried out at the height of the most serious economic crisis in modern history. It is intimately related to a process of global financial restructuring, which has resulted in the collapse of national economies and the impoverishment of large sectors of the World population. The ultimate objective is World conquest under the cloak of "human rights" and "Western democracy." "Professor Michel Chossudovsky is the most realistic of all foreign policy commentators. He is a model of integrity in analysis, his book provides an honest appraisal of the extreme danger that U.S. hegemonic neoconservatism poses to life on earth." Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Treasury "The Globalization of War comprises war on two fronts: those countries that can either be "bought" or destabilized. In other cases, insurrection, riots and wars are used to solicit U.S. military intervention. Michel Chossudovsky's book is a must read for anyone who prefers peace and hope to perpetual war, death, dislocation and despair." Hon. Paul Hellyer, former Canadian Minister of National Defence "Michel Chossudovsky describes globalization as a hegemonic weapon that empowers the financial elites and enslaves 99 percent of the world's population. "The Globalization of War" is diplomatic dynamite and the fuse is burning rapidly." Michael Carmichael, President, the Planetary Movement
Because We Say So
Because We Say So is Noam Chomsky's essential counter punch to American hegemony. In 1962, the eminent statesman Dean Acheson enunciated a principle that has dominated global politics ever since: that no legal issue arises when the United States responds to a challenge to its 'power, position, and prestige'. In short, whatever the world may think, U.S. actions are legitimate because they say so. Spanning the impact of Edward Snowden's whistleblowing and Palestinian-Israeli relations to deeper reflections on political philosophy and the importance of a commons to democracy, Because We Say So takes American imperialism head on. 'Noam Chomsky is one of a small band of individuals fighting a whole industry. And that makes him not only brilliant, but heroic' Arundhati Roy 'The world's greatest public intellectual' Observer
Requiem for the American Dream
A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! In his first major book on the subject of income inequality, Noam Chomsky skewers the fundamental tenets of neoliberalism and casts a clear, cold, patient eye on the economic facts of life. What are the ten principles of concentration of wealth and power at work in America today? They're simple enough: reduce democracy, shape ideology, redesign the economy, shift the burden onto the poor and middle classes, attack the solidarity of the people, let special interests run the regulators, engineer election results, use fear and the power of the state to keep the rabble in line, manufacture consent, marginalize the population. In Requiem for the American Dream, Chomsky devotes a chapter to each of these ten principles, and adds readings from some of the core texts that have influenced his thinking to bolster his argument. To create Requiem for the American Dream, Chomsky and his editors, the filmmakers Peter Hutchison, Kelly Nyks, and Jared P. Scott, spent countless hours together over the course of five years, from 2011 to 2016. After the release of the film version, Chomsky and the editors returned to the many hours of tape and transcript and created a document that included three times as much text as was used in the film. The book that has resulted is nonetheless arguably the most succinct and tightly woven of Chomsky's long career, a beautiful vessel--including old-fashioned ligatures in the typeface--in which to carry Chomsky's bold and uncompromising vision, his perspective on the economic reality and its impact on our political and moral well-being as a nation. "During the Great Depression, which I'm old enough to remember, it was bad–much worse subjectively than today. But there was a sense that we'll get out of this somehow, an expectation that things were going to get better . . ." —from Requiem for the American Dream

Murder in Our Midst
War endlessly tries to mask itself. The myth of the heroic soldier testing his individual courage stands in stark contrast to the reality of mass, anonymous death and the suppression of individual actions. Murder in Our Midst shows that this fundamental tension reached its natural conclusion in the Holocaust, and that disguising it has required an ongoing effort to misrepresent war and the Holocaust as something other than industrial killing. Examining a broad range of the representations of war's horrors, from scholarly depictions to those in popular literature, poetry, art, and the movies, Omer Bartov finds they have some things in common. Societies and cultures have attempted to form coherent images of horrific events, to draw didactic lessons from them, and to exploit them to legitimate ideological or political positions. Made up of interconnected essays, this book is both a scholarly and an often personal and passionate examination of the emergence, implementation, and representation of industrial killing. Bartov draws out the links between recent revisionist attempts to minimize and deny the Holocaust, and Hollywood's ongoing fascination with National Socialism and Hitler's "Final Solution." Arguing that the modern predicament reflects the effects of the Nazi genocide on current perceptions of war, history, and memory, this book is a plea for compassion and commitment in an increasingly violent and indifferent world.
