From East Timor to the Middle East, from the nature of democracy to our place in the natural world, from intellectual politics to the politics of language, Powers and Prospects is a vital compilation of Chomsky's writings on a broad array of subject material. Chomsky lifts the veil of distortions that conceals the workings of history and social policy, and reveals how the 'new' world order is little more than a remarketing of the old. No admirer of Chomsky can afford to be without this timeless selection of his thought.First published in 1996.show more
