Editorial Reviews

Review

"Chomsky is a global phenomenon . . . perhaps the most widely read voice on
foreign policy on the planet."
--The New York Times Book Review

• More than one million copies of Noam Chomsky's books have been sold in the United States in the past five years
• Noam Chomsky's books have been translated into more than forty languages
• Noam Chomsky received the United Nations Society of Writers and Artists Award of Excellence
• Each year, Noam Chomsky speaks before thousands of people on the subject of U.S. government policy
• In a 2005 poll conducted by Foreign Policy Noam Chomsky was voted the world's #1 Public Intelectual

From AudioFile

Beware of unsupported assertions! Beware of zealotry! Beware of righteous indignation! In other words, take Noam Chomsky with a grain of salt. The ground-breaking linguist and vociferous political iconoclast launches yet another jeremiad on the world situation and American culpability. What he calls "failed states," the rest of us may know as "rogue states," those whose citizens are in chaos and fear, and whose policies threaten international stability. Without blunting Chomsky's message, gravelly voiced Alan Sklar ably emphasizes his eloquence and dials down his shrillness. He eases the way for the objective listener to judge Chomsky's interpretation of current events, to separate the wheat from the chaff of his arguments.
