"Interventions" is Noam Chomsky at his best. At a time when the United States exacts a greater and greater power over the rest of the world, America's leading voice of dissent needs to be heard more than ever. In over thirty timely, accessible and urgent essays, Chomsky cogently examines the burning issues of our post-9/11 world, covering the invasion and occupation of Iraq, the Bush presidency and the Israeli invasion of Lebanon. This is an essential collection, from a vital and authoritative perspective.
Noam Chomsky has been described as the world's greatest public intellectual. He is the author of numerous bestselling political books, including Hegemony or Survival, Imperial Ambitions, Failed States and Perilous Power, all of which are published by Hamish Hamilton and Penguin.
