The New Military Humanism : Lessons from Kosovo Paperback
by Noam Chomsky
The crisis in Kosovo has excited passion and visionary exaltation of a kind rarely witnessed.
The events have been portrayed as a `new humanism', timed fortuitously with a new millennium, which will displace the crass and narrow interest politics of a mean-spirited past.
But is this new humanism guided by power interests or by humanitarian concern?
Is the resort to force undertaken `in the name of principles and values'' as professed? Or are we witnessing something more crass and familiar?
The New Military Humanism is Chomsky at his best: a brilliant and revealing analysis, offering lessons for us all and sounding a clear alarm which none should ignore.
