“Indefensible: Democracy, Counterrevolution, & the Rhetoric of Anti-Imperialism” by Rohini Hensman is about the political corruption of opposing US & European military intervention but applauding Russian & Iranian intervention as progressive. Hensman is a scholar & according to some reviews she takes a historical & scholarly approach to a problem which is most dramatized by support for the Syrian counterrevolution.
The reviews I’ve read haven’t been particularly compelling for what I think is a very important book. So I’m going to be reading & reviewing it but think others may want to read & review it also. It’s available from Amazon or through interlibrary loan. If anyone knows of a good review, please post it in the comments here.
