Review:

"World-famous MIT linguist [Noam Chomsky] has long kept up a second career as a cogent voice of the hard left, excoriating American imperialism, critiquing blinkered journalists and attacking global economic injustice . [In Rogue States] Chomsky has delivered another impressive argument that the U.S. flouts international law when it finds it convenient to do so."
Publishers Weekly

"Noam Chomsky is like a medic attempting to cure a national epidemic of selective amnesia . [Rogue States is] a timely guide to the tactics that the powerful employ to keep power concentrated and people compliant . Chomsky's work is crucial at a time when our empire perpetually disguises its pursuit of power under the banners of 'aid,' 'humanitarian intervention,' and 'globalization.' Americans have to begin deciphering the rhetoric. Chomsky's a good place to start."
Village Voice

"Nothing escapes [Chomsky's] attention [Rogue States is] wonderfully lucid."
