Mark Levine and his new book -link to info here


Overthrowing Geography: Jaffa, Tel Aviv and the Struggle for Palestine, was published by the University of California Press, while his new book,
Why They Don't Hate Us: Lifting the Veil on the Axis of Evil, was published by the Oxford-based Oneworld Publications. He also is the editor, with Viggo Mortensen and Pilar Perez, of Twilight of Empire: Responses to Occupation, which features leading scholars and activists from the US and the Muslim world writing about the US occupation of Iraq (including Naomi Klein, Mike Davis, Nadia Yassine, Jerry Quickley, Amir Hussein, Jodie Evans, Amb. Joseph Wilson, and others.

He is a professor of Modern Middle Eastern History, Culture and Islamic Studies at the U of C and made an all too BRIEF appearance on Fox (gag) spews recently along with the intensely hateful David Horowitz. this article has MANY GREAT links and information. I would encourage you to explore and learn.
The promise of the ``good life" it announces cannot be realized without a global commitment to the political, economic, and cultural development that makes such progress possible

Americans must decide: is US foreign policy going to continue to be characterized by lofty rhetoric that is rarely matched by substantive support for peace, democracy and sustainable development; or is the US finally going to live up to its highest ideals?
Please do not take these small quotes as a summary, explore for your self there is much to be learned here. I am just beginning.....
