              The Record of the Paper: How the New York Times Misreports US Foreign Policy

              The Record of the Paper: How the New York Times Misreports US Foreign Policy (Trade Paperback / Paperback, New title)

              By Friel, Howard; Falk, Richard A.

              When the New York Times finally apologized for its coverage of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction in 2004, it was too late. This study demonstrates how the newspaper of record in the US has consistently misreported the facts related to the wars waged by the United States, from Vi...etnam in the 1960s to Nicaragua in the 1980s and Iraq.

              A Paradigm Shift to Prevent and Treat Alzheimer's Disease: From Monotargeting Pharmaceuticals to Pleiotropic Plant Polyphenols (Paperback)

              A Paradigm Shift to Prevent and Treat Alzheimer's Disease: From Pharmaceutical Products to Plant Polyphenols is the first book of its kind to aggregate previously fragmented research on the combination treatment of Alzheimer's disease with non-toxic agents of pleiotropic action. ...The first part of this book introduces the pleiotropic pharmacological profiles of the featured plant polyphenols and the overarching analytical framework favoring a multi-targeting model of chronic disease prevention and treatment. The second part then applies these pharmacological profiles and the analytical framework to the pathogenic hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease. The third and final part of this book presents the broader evidentiary basis supporting the wider use of plant polyphenols to prevent and treat Alzheimer's disease. With the goal of advancing research, the authors also suggest how to improve drug development and the design and implementation of clinical trials in this area. This is a unique and valuable resource for pharmacologists, neurologists, clinicians and researchers, focusing on the potential preventative and therapeutic effects of pleiotropic targeting of polyphenols on Alzheimer's disease.

              Chomsky and Dershowitz: On Endless War and the End of Civil Liberties
               

              Chomsky and Dershowitz: On Endless War and the End of Civil Liberties (EPUB ebook)

              By Friel, Howard

              Through the lens of a careful assessment of the political views of MIT's Noam Chomsky and Harvard's Alan Dershowitz-the two protagonists of a Cambridge-based feud over the past forty years-author Howard Friel chronicles an American intellectual history from the U.S. war in Vietna...m in the 1960s to the contemporary debate about the Israel-Palestine conflict. Major findings reveal the consistency of Chomsky's principled support of international law, human rights, and civil liberties, and a reversal by Dershowitz from support in the 1960s to opposition of those legal standards today. Whereas Chomsky has opposed aggressive war (including by the United States and Israel) throughout his academic career, Dershowitz moved from opposing the war in Vietnam to supporting the U.S.-led war on terrorism, which includes "preventive wars," "preemptive attacks," armed reprisals, and targeted extrajudicial killings. Although Dershowitz once opposed the Nixon administration's assault on civil liberties, he now writes favorably about a "jurisprudence of the preventive state" in the United States, which would likely legalize "preventive surveillance," "preventive interrogations," and "preventive detentions." Friel's volume argues that a Chomskyan adherence by the United States to international law and human rights would reduce the threat of terrorism and preserve civil liberties, that the Dershowitz-backed war on terrorism increases the threat of terrorism and undermines civil liberties, and that the incremental but steady transition toward a preventive state threatens the permanent suspension of civil liberties in the United States.

              The Record of the Paper: The New York Times on US Foreign Policy and International Law,1954-2004 (Hardback, New title)

              By Falk, Richard A.; Friel, Howard

              Falk and Friel show that despite numerous US threats to invade Iraq, and despite the fact that an invasion of one country by another implicates fundamental aspects of the UN Charter and international law, the New York Times editorial page never mentioned the words UN Charter or i...nternational law in any of its 70 editorials on Iraq.
