Book Review: ‘The Shock of the New’

Australian art critic Robert HughesModern Art, War & Corporatism

Famous expatriate Australian art critic Robert Hughes died on 6 August 2012, aged 74.  It is appropriate to remember this impressive Australian by re-reviewing his important book “The Shock of the New” (1980) that analyzes the revolutions in Modern Art since the late 19th century.

Benjamin Netanyahu"Would I counsel, necessarily, a preemptive strike on Iran? I'm not sure. I would be very careful about that." - Benjamin Netanyahu, September 12, 2002

Journalist Jim Lobe has done a tremendous service to those of us who follow the warmongering propaganda of American and Israeli officials over the Iranian nuclear program.  This week, Lobe reminded us of the testimony then-former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered before the House Committee on Government Reform and Oversight on September 12, 2002 in which he marshaled nearly every hackneyed talking point about weapons of mass destruction, support for terrorists and the benefits of regime change in an effort to push the United States to illegally invade and occupy Iraq.Six months later, he got his wish.
