Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Manufacturing Consent Noam Chomsky and the Media, the companion book to the award-winning film, charts the life of America's most famous dissident, from his boyhood days running his uncle's newsstand in Manhattan to his current role as outspoken social critic.

A complete transcript of the film is complemented by key excerpts from the writings, interviews and correspondence. Also included are exchanges between Chomsky and his critics, historical and biographical material, filmmakers' notes, a resource guide, more than 270 stills from the film and 18 "Philosopher All-Stars" Trading Cards!

Mark Achbar has applied a wide range of creative abilities and technical skills to over 50 films, videos, and books. He has worked as editor, researcher and production coordinator.

"A juicily subversive biographical/philosophical documentary bristling and buzzing with ideas."—Washington Post

"You will see the whole sweep of the most challenging critic in modern political thought."—Boston Globe

"One of our real geniuses, an excellent introduction."—Village Voice

"An intellectually challenging crash course in the man's cooly contentious analysis, laying out his thoughts in a package that is clever and accessible."—Los Angeles Times
