This book is the perfect introduction to Chomsky’s political thinking, and makes a refreshing read for anyone who is uneasy about the West’s wider role in the world. Beginning with the New York newsstand where Chomsky started his political education as a teenager, the discussion broadens out to encompass colonialism and imperial control, propaganda and the media, the Arab Spring and drone warfare. The authors offer a powerful critique of the legacy of colonialism, touching upon many countries including Syria, Nicaragua, Cuba, China, Chile and Turkey.
