Why They Don't Hate Us: Lifting the Veil on the Axis of Evil by Mark LeVine (Repost)
Publisher: Oneworld; annotated edition (July 1, 2005) | ISBN: 1851683658 | Pages: 320 | PDF | 2.75 MB
This sprawling book is divided into three parts, and touches on many diverse subjects that fall under its larger themes of globalization and Middle Eastern attitudes toward the West. LeVine, a professor of Middle Eastern history and a musician who has recorded with musicians as diverse as Mick Jagger and Hassan Hakmoun, clearly has an interest in music and its potential for bridge-building. He includes a chapter on "Rock and Resistance in the Middle East and North Africa" and advocates for what he calls "culture jamming," or bringing people together to "build an alternative to imperialism, occupation, intolerance, and violence."
