Chomsky stuff…

 

LInk to a new Chomsky book…  Titled Because We Say So   http://www.powells.com/biblio/0872866572?_isbn&PID=36683

Concise, forceful commentaries on US politics and global crises, from cyberwar and surveillance to the increasing urgency of climate change.

“Chomsky is a global phenomenon … perhaps the most widely read voice on foreign policy on the planet.”—New York Times Book Review

“Unwavering political contrarian Noam Chomsky smart-bombs the U.S. military’s global Interventions. Shock and awe!”—Vanity Fair

Because We Say So presents more than thirty concise, forceful commentaries on U.S. politics and global power. Written between 2011 and 2015, Noam Chomsky’s arguments forge a persuasive counter-narrative to official reports on US politics and policies during global crises. Find here classic Chomsky on the increasing urgency of climate change, the ongoing impact of Edward Snowden’s whistleblowing, nuclear politics, cyberwar, terrorism, Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Israel, and the Middle East, security and state power, as well as deeper reflections on the Obama doctrine, political philosophy, the Magna Carta, and the importance of a commons to democracy.

Because We Say So is the third in a series of books by Chomsky published by City Lights that includes Making the Future(2012) and Interventions (2007), a book banned by US military censors. Taken together, the three books present a complete collection of the articles Chomsky writes regularly for the New York Times Syndicate and News Service, which are largely ignored by newspapers in the United States. Because We Say So offers fierce, accessible, and timely political writing by America’s foremost public intellectual and political dissident.

Noam Chomsky is one of the world’s most well known critics of U.S. policy. He has published numerous groundbreaking and bestselling books on global politics, history, and linguistics.
