How do we understand the ethics of humanitarian intervention in today's world? After Western intervention in Libya's civil war this new edition of A New Generation Draws the Line provides timely answers.
In a new chapter on recent interventions Chomsky dissects the meaning of the 'right to protect' principle. Other chapters examine the West's uses and abuses of 'humanitarian intervention' including detailed studies of East Timor and Kosovo.
The actions of Muammar Gaddafi and the trial of Serbian military commander Ratko Mladic have energised narratives about the role of the 'civilised' West. In this book, Chomsky deploys his forensic method - asking the difficult questions the West would prefer to avoid.

'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

'For Chomsky, the 'official doctrine' of military intervention to safeguard human rights is as much a sham as the 'New World Order' trumpeted during the Gulf War'
