Inside Lebanon: Journey to a Shattered Land with Noam and Carol Chomsky by Assaf Kfoury
This prescient and timely book documents Noam Chomsky's visit to Lebanon, in May 2006, to lecture on U.S. imperialism and the imminent crises facing the Middle East—two months before Israel orchestrated major military campaigns against Lebanon and Palestine. During his visit, he met with political leaders, including those of Hizbullah, toured refugee camps, and inspected a former Israeli prison and torture compound. Inside Lebanon describes Chomsky’s journey and situates it within the tragically altered context of Lebanon and Palestine before and after the war of 2006. The book includes essays and photographs by Carol Chomsky, Irene L. Gendizier, Assaf Kfoury, Jennifer Loewenstein, Hanady Salman, Rasha Salti, and Fawwaz Traboulsi.
