About the Author
Noam Chomsky is a major figure in twentieth-century linguistics. Born in Philadelphia in 1928, he's taught since 1955 at the Massachsetts Institute of Technology, where he became a full professor at the age of 32.
In addition to his work as a linguist, Chomsky has written many books on contemporary issues. His political talks have been heard, typically by standing-room only audiences, all over the country and the globe.
In a saner world, his tireless efforts to promote justice would have long sonce won him the Nobel Peace Prize, but the commitee keeps giving it to people like Henry Kissinger.
