Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this wide-ranging intellectual tour de force, Chomsky brings together his thoughts on topics ranging from language and human nature to the Middle East settlement and the role of East Timor in the New World Order. This is the first collection of his essays in recent years to bring together questions of philosophy, ethics and foreign policy.

Book News Annotation:

Eight essays, based on talks given during a week in Australia in 1995, bring together world-renowned linguist and outspoken critic of US foreign policy Chomsky's latest thinking. His topics encompass a wide scope--from language and human nature, to the Middle East settlement, to the place of East Timor in the new world order.
