    DescriptionFor the past forty years Noam Chomsky's writings on politics and language have established him as a preeminent public intellectual and as one of the most original and wide-ranging political and social critics of our time. Among the seminal figures in linguistic theory over the past century, since the 1960s Chomsky has also secured a place as perhaps the leading dissident voice in the United States. Chomsky's many bestselling works--including "Manufacturing Consent," "Hegemony or Survival," "Understanding Power," and "Failed States"--have served as essential touchstones for dissidents, activists, scholars, and concerned citizens on subjects ranging from the media to human rights to intellectual freedom. In particular, Chomsky's scathing critiques of the U.S. wars in Vietnam, Central America, and the Middle East have furnished a widely accepted intellectual inspiration for antiwar movements over nearly four decades. "The Essential Chomsky" assembles the core of his most important writings, including excerpts from his most influential texts over the past forty years. Here is an unprecedented, comprehensive overview of Chomsky's thought.

    Review quote
    "I would like to invite you, very respectfully, to those who have not read this book, to read it." --Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Noam Chomsky's "Hegemony or Survival" "Noam Chomsky is one of the most significant challengers of unjust power and delusions; he goes against every assumption about American altruism and humanitarianism." --Edward Said "A rebel without a pause." --Bono "Chomsky ranks with Marx, Shakespeare, and the Bible as one of the ten most quoted sources in the humanities--and is the only writer among them still alive." --"The Guardian"
