The Colonial Present: Afghanistan. Palestine. Iraq
Derek Gregory (Author)
Available / dispatched within 1 - 4 weeks
In this powerful and passionate critique of the 'war on terror' in Afghanistan and its extensions into Palestine and Iraq, Derek Gregory traces the long history of British and American involvements in the Middle East and shows how colonial power continues to cast long shadows over our own present. It argues the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11 activated a series of political and cultural responses that were profoundly colonial in nature. This is the first analysis of the 'war on terror' to connect events in Afghanistan, Palestine, and Iraq. It traces the connections between geopolitics and the lives of ordinary people. It is richly illustrated and packed with empirical detail.
