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 re-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.
