Gaza in Crisis
Reflections on Israel's War Against the Palestinians
"Chomsky is a global phenomenon . . . he may be the most widely read American voice on foreign policy on the planet."—The New York Times Book Review
"Ilan Pappé is Israel's bravest, most principled, most incisive historian."—John Pilger
Described by a UN fact-finding mission as "a deliberately disproportionate attack designed to punish, humiliate, and terrorize a civilian population," Israel's Operation Cast Lead thrust the humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip into the center of the debate about the Israel/Palestine conflict.
In Gaza in Crisis, Noam Chomsky and Ilan Pappé, two of the issue's most insightful and prominent critical voices, survey the fallout from Israel's conduct in Gaza and place it into the context of Israel's longstanding occupation of Palestine.
"This sober and unflinching analysis should be read and reckoned with by anyone concerned with practicable change in the long-suffering region."
