The Backroom Boys is a dispassionate examination of official indifference and duplicity. Chomsky exemplifies these tendencies by focussing on the image of the United States as reflected in Vietnam and provides a devastating indictment of the way American power operates today.
Through a close analysis of the Pentagon Papers Chomsky outlines with great conviction the horrifying detachment and remoteness of those in power from the realities of Vietnam. The essay which follows, discussing the implications of the Paris Peace Agreements, continues this theme showing how Washington, with the aid of the American press, has misrepresented these Agreements to the American public and in so doing has justified continued involvement in South-east Asia.
Noam Chomsky is acknowledged throughout the world as one of America's leading social critics and a major opponent of the Vietnam War.
