Propaganda and Control of the Public Mindby Noam Chomsky
Synopses & Reviews
The newest, and perhaps most important lecture so far captured on compact disc from Professor Chomsky
"Chomsky has been unrelenting in his attacks on the American hierarchy....(He) is up there with Thoreau and Emerson in the literature of rebellion." — Rolling Stone
"If the job of a rebel is to tear down the old and prepare for the new, then this is Noam Chomsky, a 'rebel without a pause, ' the 'Elvis of academia....' As rock n roll in the 90s continues to be gagged, it is ironic that a man of 65 years turns out to be the real rebel sprit." — Bono of U2
"The war against working people should be understood to be a real war. It's not a new war. It's an old war. Furthermore it's a perfectly conscious war everywhere, but specifically in the US...which happens to have a highly class-conscious business class.....And they have long seen themselves as fighting a bitter class war, except they don't want anybody else to know about it." (Noam Chomsky, from the CD)
The latest in the audio series bringing Chomsky's finest lectures to compact disc, and perhaps his most important to date. An introduction to, and synthesis of, his key thinking on the media, propaganda and its pivotal role in the relentless class straggle being waged daily.
'There's no doubt that one of the major issues of twentieth century history, surely in the US, is corporate propaganda... Its goal from the beginning, perfectly openly and consciously, was to "control the public mind," as they put it. The reason was that the public mind was seen as the greatest threat to the corporations." (Noam Chomsky, from the CD)
