Towards a New Cold War
Towards a New Cold War
By Noam Chomsky
Pantheon, 1982, 497 pp.

These long essays written over the past decade will sustain the author's reputation as a slam-bang hitter for the American intellectual Left. He excoriates every aspect of American policy and everyone who has supported it in print. He is particularly vitriolic on policy in the Middle East and on Israel's harsh stance toward the Palestinians. The most interesting essay deals with the tacit support by the United States for Indonesia's brutal but little-noticed war against the people of East Timor.
