"Reading Chomsky is like standing in a wind tunnel. Whti relentless logic, he bids us to listen closely to what our leaders tell ud - and to discern what they are leaving out.. Agree with him or not, we lose out by not listening."
(From Business Week).
For more than half a century, the United States has been pursuing a grand imperial strategy with the aim of staking out the globe. Our leaders have shown themselves willing - as in the Cuban missile crisis - to follow the dream of dominance no matter how h igh the risks. Now the Bush administration is intensifying this process, driving us toward the final frontiers of imperial control, toward a choice between the prerogatives of power and a livable Earth. In Hegemony or Survival, Noam Chomsky investigates how we came to this moment, what kind of peril we find ourselves in, and why our rulers are willing to jeopardize the future of our species.
