Synopsis

In a single volume, the seminal writings of the world's leading philosopher, linguist and critic, and author of the bestselling Who Rules the World

'The general population doesn't know what's happening, and it doesn't even know that it doesn't know'
Noam Chomsky

Noam Chomsky's writings on politics and language have established him as one of the most original and wide-ranging political and social critics of our time, and as perhaps the leading dissident voice in the United States.

The Essential Chomsky brings together selections from his most important writings, from his groundbreaking critique of B.F. Skinner to his bestselling works Hegemony or Survival and Failed States, concerning subjects ranging from critiques of corporate media and U.S. interventionism to intellectual freedom and the political economy of human rights. Featuring a collection of twenty-five pieces of writing spanning six decades, this is an unparalleled and comprehensive overview of Chomsky's thought.

'Chomsky is arguably the most important intellectual alive' New York Times
