What Uncle Sam Really Wants

by Noam Chomsky


What Uncle Sam Really Wants
by Noam Chomsky

"Highly recommended." --Booklist

Noam Chomsky is one of America's most popular speakers, electrifying standing-room-only audiences all over the country as he dissects US foreign policy with insights like these:

  • Contrary to what virtually everyone--left or right--says, the United States achieved its major objectives in Indochina. Vietnam was demolished. There's no danger that successful development there will provide a model for other countries in the region.

  • At exactly the moment it invaded Panama...the Bush administration announced new high-technology sales to China [and] plans...to lift a ban on loans to Iraq...Compared to Bush's buddies in Baghdad and Beijing, Noriega looked like Mother Teresa.

  • Prospects are pretty dim for Eastern Europe. The West has a plan for it--they want to turn large parts of it into a new, easily exploitable part of the Third World.

"Noam Chomsky ruthlessly exposes the dark side of power. Everything politics is, Chomsky isn't. He takes you where few dare to tread." - Jerry Brown

"How adroitly he cuts through the crap and actually says something." - Village Voice

"Arguably the most important intellectual alive." - New York Times

"Over the last dozen years, Chomsky was the most often cited living author. Among intellectual luminaries of all eras, Chomsky placed eighth just behind Plato and Sigmund Freud." - Chicago Tribune

"One of the most respected and influential intellectuals in the world." - Rolling Stone
