About the author

Noam Chomsky is widely regarded to be one of the foremost critics of US foreign policy in the world. He has published numerous groundbreaking books, articles, and essays on global politics, history, and linguistics. Since 2003 he has written a monthly column for the New York Times syndicate. His recent books include Masters of Mankind and Hopes and Prospects. Haymarket Books recently released updated editions of twelve of his classic books.


"Chomsky is a global phenomenon . . . he may be the most widely read American voice on foreign policy on the planet."
The New York Times Book Review

Praise for Rogue States:

"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."

Praise for The Washington Connection and Third World Fascism: The Political Economy of Human Rights: Volume I

"A major contribution to understanding political repression inflicted by the CIA and its related services on millions around the globe and the economic requirements behind such repression . . . A must-read for all those who would resist."
—Philip Agee, former CIA agent

Praise for On Power and Ideology

"A rigorous exposition of the logic of U.S. foreign policy."
—The Nation

"Highly persuasive writing."

Praise for After the Cataclysm

"After the Cataclysm is the story of how the US press prints the news it sees fit to print...The establishment press will do all it can to proven this powerful book from being read, but the evidence is too clear and the analysis too careful done for the best of orchestrated campaigns to keep the book in the close. Read it! Put it in your library! Talk to your neighbors about it! No Where have I read such an incisive statement on the how the press serves the corporations and institution rather than the truth."
—Don Luce, Clergy and Laity Concerned

"Anyone who doubts the active hostility and dishonesty of the country's most prestigious liberal media—including the New York Times and Washington Post—should read this book."
—Dave Dellinger, one of the Chicago Seven

"After the Cataclysm is a valuable, carefully document assessment of Western reporting on post-1975 Indochina. Especially comprehensive in its treatment of Cambodia, it provides a trenchant—and healthy—critique of news media coverage that has usually been as tendencious as the dealing with the early years of US military intervention in Indochina."
—George Kahin, Subversion as Foreign Policy: The Secret Eisenhower and Dulles Debacle in Indonesia

"By revealing to us the true history of postwar Indochina developments, Chomsky and Herman have given us an essential weapon in the ongoing struggle against willed historical amnesia."
—Marilyn Young, President of the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations
