Abstract or Brief Description


“Nitzan has run into snags on many an occasion trying to get innovative research on Israel and on the Iraq War published in the Western press and academic journals. In one of his more eye-opening pieces, a book review entitled “The Rockefeller Boys”, he reviews the transformation the Israeli economy underwent in the 1980s and 1990s, from socialist command economy to a capitalist laissez-faire system, which ties in with his other work on Israel’s desire for ‘peace’. Long have I known that Chomsky has always seen Israeli politics as beholden to developments in the US, but I never thought this extended anywhere near as far as Nitzan reveals.”
