The Umbrella of U.S. Power: The Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Contradicitions of U.S. Policy (Seven Stories' Open Media Pamphlet Series) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chomsky observes the 50th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a "Path to a Better World," while chronicling how far off the trail the United States is with respect to actual political practice and conduct. Analysing the contradictions of U.S. power while illustrating the real progress won by sustained popular struggle, Chomsky cuts through official political rhetoric to examine how the United States not only violates the UD, but at times uses it as a weapon to wield against designated enemies.

Synopsis:

Chomsky observes the 50th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights while chronicling how the foreign policy of the US too often differs from its rhetoric.
