Shattered Illusions - Analyzing the War on Terrorism (english)
03 Oct 2002
Shattered Illusions is unashamedly a voice of dissent which brings together in one comprehensive volume, essays from intellectuals, human right activists, lawyers, journalists, and academics whose insights and perspectives provide both an intellectual and humane criticism of the Bush administration's current war policy. It not only challenges the framing of the war as a struggle between good and evil, but also critically assesses President George W. Bush's explanation for anti-U.S. sentiments.

SHATTERED ILLUSIONS ANALYZING THE WAR ON TERRORISM
Editor: Aftab A. Malik, Amal Press, London - 2002
350 pages, $19.99
"The new millennium quickly produced two terrible new crimes, added to the gloomy record of persisting ones. The first was the terrorist attacks of September 11; the second, the response to them." - Noam Chomsky
Shattered Illusions is unashamedly a voice of dissent which brings together in one comprehensive volume, essays from intellectuals, human right activists, lawyers, journalists, and academics whose insights and perspectives provide both an intellectual and humane criticism of the Bush administration's current war policy. It not only challenges the framing of the war as a struggle between good and evil, but also critically assesses President George W. Bush's explanation for anti-U.S. sentiments.
Shattered Illusions examines U.S. policies and actions in the Middle East, a focus of its 'war on terror'. But is 'terrorism' what really lies at the heart of the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians, as the Sharon government contends? And what is driving the U.S. toward war with Iraq? Shattered Illusions explores the histories and implications of these conflicts for the United States and the peoples of the region.

"There really is a feeling being manufactured by the media and the government that a collective 'we' exists and that 'we' all act and feel together [...] and the use of the collective 'we' by journalists [...] 'we' bombed, 'we' said, 'we' decided, 'we' acted [...] So American unity is being projected with such force so to allow very little questioning of U.S. policy" - Edward Said
