Tony 2012 – Have you seen this man?

A new campaign from our friends at Stop the War Coalition:

Making the World Safe for Capitalism

How Iraq Threatened the US Economic Empire and had to be Destroyed

Christopher Doran

A fresh take on the causes of the 2003 Iraq war. Provides a radical new perspective based on analysis of trends in global political economy.

“A significant contribution to the scholarly literatures on neoliberalism and the US intervention in lraq. Among the most important claims is that neoliberal governance can assume a distinctly militarised form, as it has in Iraq. … Insightful and compelling.” – David McNally, York University, author of Global Slump: The Economics and Politics of Crisis and Resistance

“Doran pulls no punches in revealing the abuses of corporate and state power. His emphasis on the intimate connection between economic and military interests makes for compelling reading. This is a powerful account of how the expansion of the ‘market economy’ into unwelcoming territory is driven by an iron fist.” – Professor Frank Stilwell, University of Sydney

Erasing Iraq

The Human Costs of Carnage

Michael Otterman, Richard Hil and Paul Wilson. Foreword by Dahr Jamail

Reveals the true human costs of war in Iraq, an unfolding tragedy that has yielded millions of dead and displaced Iraqis since the first Gulf War.

“If I could only recommend one book that provides a comprehensive
overview of both the situation in Iraq today, and the decades of
US-backed policy it took to create this nightmare scenario,
Erasing Iraq is it.”
– Dahr Jamail, from the foreword

A New Generation Draws the Line

“Humanitarian” Intervention and the Standards of the West

Noam Chomsky

Deftly exposes the hypocrisy and double-speak of those who use ‘humanitarian intervention’ as a cover for imperial policies.

“Judged in terms of the power, range, novelty, and influence of his thought, Noam Chomsky is arguably the most important intellectual alive.” – The New York Times

“On the one hand we have the established media, the respectable community of foreign affairs analysts, the government – on the other, Noam Chomsky.” – The Nation
