9780745335438: Culture of Terrorism (Chomsky Perspectives)

Chomsky ends his preface to Culture of Terrorism with the words, "As the latest inheritors of a grim tradition, we should at least have the integrity to look in the mirror without evasion". The tradition to which he is referring is none other than the Western imperial project and in encouraging Americans to pursue integrity, he dissects the events of just one year - 1986 - at the height of the Reagan Era and describes American involvement in acts of supreme state terror, both open and clandestine, to present a case study which has great relevance today and whose lessons must never be forgotten.

About the Author:

Noam Chomsky is a world renowned linguist and one of our foremost social critics. He is Institute Professor in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at MIT and the author of numerous books for Pluto Press.

From Library Journal:

Chomsky, linguist and political essayist, continues his critique of President Reagan's Central American policy begun in Turning the Tide ( LJ 4/1/86), in which he argued that the United States has opposed human rights and democratization in the region to advance our economic interests. Here the thesis is extended to the Iran-contra scandal. Chomsky's documentation neatly supports his logic. Leftist adherents will applaud, while the majoritydepicted as perpetrators or dupes of military-based state capitalismwill ignore the book or dismiss it as rhetoric. But Chomsky has a point of view not frequently encountered in the press. For larger public and academic libraries. Kenneth F. Kister, Pinellas Park P.L., Fla.
