Über den Autor
Noam Chomsky is the most famous social critic in the world. Lionised abroad, his ideas are marginalised here¿except in linguistics, where they¿ve revolutionised the field. According to MIT and the Chicago Tribune, he¿s the most cited author in the last two decades and is the eighth most cited source of all time (only surpasssed by Marx, Lenin, Shakespeare, Aristotle, the Bible, Plato and Freud). Born in 1928, he¿s taught at MIT for 55 years.
According to The New York Times, Noam Chomsky is ¿arguably the most important intellectual alive.¿ But he isn¿t easy to read . . . or at least he wasn¿t until these books came along. Made up of intensively edited speeches and interviews, they offer something not found anywhere else: pure Chomsky, with every dazzling idea and penetrating insight intact, delivered in clear, accessible, reader-friendly prose.
