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.
On Western Terrorism
In On Western Terrorism Noam Chomsky, world-renowned dissident intellectual, discusses Western power and propaganda with filmmaker and investigative journalist Andre Vltchek. The discussion weaves historical narrative with the two men’s personal experiences, which have led them to a life of activism. Beginning with the New York newsstand where Chomsky first began his political education as a teenager, the discussion broadens out to the shifting forms of imperial control and the Western propaganda apparatus. Along the way Chomsky and Vltchek touch upon many countries of which they have personal experience, including Nicaragua, Cuba, China, Chile, and Turkey. A blast of fresh air which blows away the cobwebs of propaganda and deception, On WesternTerrorism is a powerful critique of the West’s role in the world and a testament to two lives dedicated to humanism, activism, and the search for knowledge.

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.
Marxism and the Muslim World
In the aftermath of the Arab Uprisings, Maxime Rodinson's Marxist commentary has a new and powerful resonance. Political repression, corruption and economic stagnation stimulated revolt across the Arab world. Now the revolutionary euphoria has faded, leaving violent power struggles, overtly Islamic political parties have begun to take power. Meanwhile hysteria over terrorism and fundamentalism has made Islam the neoliberal West's enemy number one. In this collection Rodinson studies the economic and political, rather than religious, characteristics of Islam. His major themes include: the history of the Marxist Movement in the Islamic Middle East; the dialogue between Socialism and Islam, and Marxism and Arab nationalism; the relationship between national conflicts and class struggle; and the history of Communism in Arab states such as Syria and Egypt. Breaking from colonial "Orientalism" Rodinson invented new critical approaches, helping to define the discipline of Islamic studies. Unashamedly political and polemical, he provides an insightful picture of political Islam and Marxism, and the implications for the Arab working class. The subject of this book could hardly be more relevant to politics today.
Chomsky on Democracy Education
This volume draws together a range of Chomsky's writings arguing that the goal of education is to produce free human beings whose values are not accumulation and domination, but rather free association on terms of equality.
