In "Profit Over People," Noam Chomsky takes on neoliberalism: the pro-corporate system of economic and political policies presently waging a form of class war worldwide. By examining the contradictions between the democratic and market principles proclaimed by those in power and those actually practiced, Chomsky critiques the tyranny of the few that restricts the public arena and enacts policies that vastly increase private wealth, often with complete disregard for social and ecological consequences. Combining detailed historical examples and uncompromising criticism, Chomsky offers a profound sense of hope that social activism can reclaim people's rights as citizens rather than as consumers, redefining democracy as a global movement, not a global market.

NOAM CHOMSKY is known throughout the world for his political and philosophical writings, as well as for his groundbreaking work in linguistics. A professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology since 1955, Chomsky first gained recognition for his theory of generative grammar, which drew attention to the syntactic universality of all human languages. But it is as a critic of unending war, corporate control and neoliberalism that Chomsky has become one of the country's most well known public intellectuals. He is the author of Profit Over People: Neoliberalism and Global Order, 9-11: Was There an Alternative? and over forty other books. To this day Chomsky remains an active and uncompromising voice of dissent.
