Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

CHOMSKY'S CLASSIC ANALYSIS OF THE LIBERAL SCHOLARSHIP THAT JUSTIFIED AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY AND AGGRESSION DURING THE 1960s. Objectivity and Liberal Scholarship is Chomsky's powerful indictment of a liberal intelligentsia that provided self-serving arguments for war in Vietnam--legitimizing US commitment to autocratic rule and intervention in Asia as the tasks of "pacification theory." Including Chomsky's analysis of the Spanish Civil War as a revolutionary war from below, this book lays bare the reluctance of scholarly elites to engage in mass movements and social change, revealing not objectivity, but its opposite--the use of ideology to mask self-interest. Hailed by The Nation as "the first significant work of social and political thought to come out of the Vietnamese catastrophe, " Objectivity and Liberal Scholarship is an indispensable lens through which to consider mainstream punditry today.
