In Noam Chomsky comments on the September th attacks the new war on terrorism Osama bin Laden U S involvement with Afghanistan media control and the long term implications of America s military attacks abroad Informed by his deep understanding of the gravity of these issues and the global stakes demonstrates Chomsky s impeccable knowledge of U S foreign policy in the Middle East and South Asia and sheds light on the rapidly shifting balance of world power Speaking out against escalating violence Chomsky critically examines the United States own foreign policy record and considers what international institutions might be employed against underground networks and national states accused of terrorism s analysis still stands as a measure of how well the media is able to serve its role of informing the citizenry so crucial to our democracy in times of war, Noam Chomsky s backpocket classic on wartime propaganda and opinion control begins by asserting two models of democracy one in which the public actively participates and one in which the public is manipulated and controlled According to Chomsky propaganda is to democracy as the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state and the mass media is the primary vehicle for delivering propaganda in the United States From an examination of how Woodrow Wilson s Creel Commission succeeded within six months in turning a pacifist population into a hysterical war mongering population to Bush Sr s war on Iraq Chomsky examines how the mass media and public relations industries have been used as propaganda to generate public support for going to war Chomsky further touches on how the modern public relations industry has been influenced by Walter Lippmann s theory of spectator democracy in which the public is seen as a bewildered herd that needs to be directed not empowered and how the public relations industry in the United States focuses on controlling the public mind and not on informing it Media Control is an invaluable primer on the secret workings of disinformation in democratic societies br br br i From the Audiobook Download edition i, The best of Chomsky s recent talks on the past present and future of the politics of power In a series of enlightening and wide ranging discussions all published here for the first time Chomsky radically reinterprets the events of the past three decades covering topics from foreign policy during Vietnam to the decline of welfare under the Clinton administration, div div div b It s hard to imagine any American reading this book and not seeing his country in a new and deeply troubling light i The New York Times Book Review i b div div br The United States has repeatedly asserted its right to intervene militarily against failed states around the globe In this much anticipated follow up to his international bestseller i Hegemony or Survival i Noam Chomsky turns the tables showing how the United States itself shares features with other failed states suffering from a severe democratic deficit eschewing domestic and international law and adopting policies that increasingly endanger its own citizens and the world Exploring the latest developments in U S foreign and domestic policy Chomsky reveals Washington s plans to further militarize the planet greatly increasing the risks of nuclear war He also assesses the dangerous consequences of the occupation of Iraq documents Washington s self exemption from international norms including the Geneva conventions and the Kyoto Protocol and examines how the U S electoral system is designed to eliminate genuine political alternatives impeding any meaningful democracy div div br Forceful lucid and meticulously documented i Failed States i offers a comprehensive analysis of a global superpower that has long claimed the right to reshape other nations while its own democratic institutions are in severe crisis Systematically dismantling the United States pretense of being the world s arbiter of democracy i Failed States i is Chomsky s most focused and urgent critique to date div div div
