Noam Chomsky, Et, Author, Eduardo Galeano, Foreword by Haymarket Books $16 (195p) ISBN 978-1-931859-59-2
The essays in Chomsky's latest are largely concerned with Iraq, seen through the combative, populist (though by no means popular) convictions for which the linguist and activist has become known. His long-standing criticism of Israel makes it the next-most discussed topic; he accuses Israel of kidnapping and killing civilians and wonders why no one has yet called for a Desert Storm-style invasion of the Jewish state. Though he clearly represents a voice unfettered by elitist concerns, tainted money, or fear of reprisal, what comes through most strongly-indeed, what drives his arguments, isn't special insight into the issues at hand, but simple disgust with American imperialism and hypocrisy. [This new translation includes a prolog by the renowned Uruguayan author and journalist Eduardo Galeano.] [PW 7/09/07]
