World Orders Old and New

by Noam Chomsky

Noam Chomsky takes on the international scene since 1945, devoting particular attention to events following the collapse of the Soviet Union. Chomsky develops a forceful critique of Western government, from imperialist foreign policies to the Clinton administration's empty promises to the poor.

Judged in terms of the power, range, novelty, and influence of his thought, Noam Chomsky is arguably the most important intellectual alive. (New York Times Book Review)

With his customary mastery of the historical record and his command of enormous amounts of source material, Chomsky here debunks the notion that the 'new world order' of Bush and Clinton is different in any essentials from the old world order. . . . Impressive. (The Progressive)

For nearly thirty years now, Noam Chomsky has parsed the main proposition of American power-what they do is aggression, what we do upholds freedom-with encyclopedic attention to detail and an unflagging sense of outrage. WORLD ORDERS OLD AND NEW . . . may be his best book; it's certainly his most concise and far-ranging. (Utne Reader)
