books by Noam Chomsky
The Uses of Haiti (3rd Edition)
Common Courage Press
Paul Farmer is a wonderful human being who has devoted his life to helping the poor of Haiti get medical care. This is barely mentioned in the book. To me, this gives his opinions even more credibility. He details the abuses of Haiti by our hegemony and then details the reasons for these abuses. I had always suspected the reasons, and my suspicions were confirmed. I wanted my opinions ...
Profit Over People: Neoliberalism & Global Order
Robert W. McChesney
Seven Stories Press
Neo-Liberalism In Every Aspect Of Our Lives
"Profit Over People" is very sobering work by McChesney and Chomsky about a topic that exists in virtually all aspects of our lives. However, it's rarely defined nor even mentioned in the American mainstream media. There are reasons for this. A lack of interest for details by the public and a mainstream media that doesn't cover the topic. In addition, the US was founded by and for the elitist ...
What We Say Goes: Conversations on U.S. Power in a Changing World (American Empire Project)
Fine critique of US (and therefore British) foreign policy
Chomsky consistently finds documents and articles that the rest of us have missed. Like all his books, this is full of fascinating revelations. His title comes from a speech by George Bush senior in 1991, when he said that the main principle of his new world order was, `what we say goes'. In eight interviews conducted in 2006 and 2007, Chomsky and radio journalist David Barsamian cover ...

Noam Chomsky demonstrates his brilliance once again!
Noam Chomsky is one of the most profound intelectuals alive today and the world would be a lot better if more people payed attention to his works.
The Essential Chomsky (New Press Essential)
Clear thinking makes clearer message
When you read Chomsky you discover the world as it is. He takes aways bias views and show us what happened, why it happened and why we should care. His critics always try to undermine his persona, but always fail at undermining his arguments. Anyone interested in truths and logic should enjoy his books.
Failed States: The Abuse of Power and the Assault on Democracy (American Empire Project)
Noam Chomsky turns the table on conventional wisdom by claiming that the state most in need of democratic intervention is the United States itself. His basic premise is that the United States government is controlled more by corporate interests than by the people. Government policies are driven by the needs of corporate giants. To back up this claim, Chomsky looks at America's history of ...

Media Control, Second Edition: The Spectacular Achievements of Propaganda (Open Media)
This was one of the most insightful and concise books on media studies I have had the pleasure of reading
Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media
Edward S. Herman
, Noam Chomsky
The Creel Committee, the corporate media, and systematic deceit: Manufacturing Consent
"They who have put out the people's eyes reproach them of their blindness." (John Milton; from epigraph to Manufacturing Consent). In 1917, Woodrow Wilson established an independent agency, known variously as the Committee on Public Information (CPI) and the Creel Committee, whose purpose was to control public opinion in the US with an eye towards generating support for the war effort in ...
Hopes and Prospects
Ignore Chomsky's Hopes and Prospects At Your Peril
As not only American foreign policy but its domestic economy accelerates its decline to a point that only the blind or obtuse can ignore, people who have dismissed Noam Chomsky in the past as "too radical" may now want to read Hopes and Prospects in order to understand what is really going on. The term "hopes" is an ironic reference to President Obama's "politics of hope", a politics that has ...
Chomsky on Anarchism
Reviving American Politics. (I am actually 21)
Post-9/11 politics has thus far been an arena dominated by fear, hatred, and finger-pointing. Whether from liberal or conservative viewpoints, social analysts are quick to place blame, but never offer solutions. The social climate, created by the corporate media through newspapers, books, magazines, and television, has created a culture of fear, political apathy, and hopelessness, while the ...
The Chomsky-Foucault Debate: On Human Nature
Highly recommended, and a welcome contribution to library philosophy shelves.
The Chomsky-Foucault Debate On Human Nature collects and presents an integral debate held between two of the world's top intellectuals, Noam Chomsky and Michel Foucault, held in 1971 (during the height of the Vietnam War) to wrestle with the ancient question: Is there such a thing as "innate" human nature independent of our experiences and external influences? In addition to reproducing the ...

Love him or hate him, Noam Chomsky serves a vital role to any thoughtful and/or politically minded individual in the United States today.

Although Chomsky later changed his ideas towards linguistics in'Aspects of the Theory of Syntax', but this book is essential in understanding his relation to the Bloomfildean school and is essential for understanding 20'th century linguistics.
Fateful Triangle: The United States, Israel, and the Palestinians (Updated Edition) (South End Press Classics ...
South End Press
After reading several of Chomsky's books, I have more and more respect for this author and thinker. He is a meticulous historian and political analyst, and his critics should read his works before attacking him. This book is a compendium of facts, figures, quotes, and analysis that comprise the truth behind the complicated politics of the Middle East. Chomsky is an honorable follower to the ...
Gaza in Crisis: Reflections on Israel's War Against the Palestinians

The New York Times Book Review "Ilan Pappé is Israel's bravest, most principled, most incisive historian."?John Pilger Described by a UN fact-finding mission as "a deliberately disproportionate attack designed to punish, humiliate, and terrorize a civilian population," Israel's Operation Cast Lead thrust the humanitarian ...

Aspects of the Theory of Syntax
The MIT Press
The 60s Linguistics Nuclear-Bomb: Cannot be ignored.
Joe from Providence. I was a linguistics student when this book came out. Students and instructors alike were baffled, spent hours trying to understand it, and loved it or berated it. But no one could remain neutral about Chomsky's Theory of Syntax. Many years after graduate courses in different linguistic grammars, I picked it up again, and it is a comparatively easy read for present or former ...
