Description

Inside Lebanon documents Noam and Carol Chomsky's eight-day journey to Lebanon in May 2006 and situates it within the tragically altered context of Lebanon and Palestine before and after the war of 2006.  Noam Chomsky's essays provide the background and framework for understanding the role of U.S. politics, power, and policies in these conflicts.  Chomsky examines how the United States wages war and imposes world domination while presenting itself as the righteous protector of democracy.  Ironically, U.S. efforts at imperial control generate conflict and crises within the region while undermining the very democracy they claim to promote.
