Today we're delighted to have with us Noam Chomsky, one of the world's foremost social critics, institute professor emeritus in the MIT Department of Linguistics and Philosophy and author of many books including "Failed States" and "Hegemony or Survival," but we talk with him today about his latest book "Gaza in Crisis: Reflections on Israel's War Against the Palestinians." Noam Chomsky wrote "Gaza In Crisis" with Ilan Pappé, professor of history at the University of Exeter in the UK. This book surveys Israel's recent attacks on Gaza from Operation Cast Lead to the Gaza Freedom Flotilla in a very sobering analysis. (December 6, 2010)
