This book is a collection of essays, written between 2011 and 2014, commenting on the foreign and climate policy of the United States and its client, Israel. Chomsky, always extremely critical of US foreign policy, gives us the behind-the-scenes information that is seldom found in the traditional press. He examines various world crises, especially in the Middle East and Latin America, and looks at how problems are caused and exacerbated by US intervention.

If even half of the information in this book is true, the world is a frightening place!

A must-read book for anyone who cares about what is happening in the world.
