About the Author

Noam Chomsky is known throughout the world for his groundbreaking work in linguistics and for his relentless advocacy for democracy, freedom and self-determination. He is author of dozens of books, many of which have become international best sellers. He is Institute Professor in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston. A member of the American Academy of Science, he has published widely in both linguistics and current affairs, and writes a monthly column for The New York Times Syndicate which is the basis for a series of books published in the Open Media Series by City Lights books: Interventions, Making the Future, and Because We Say So.


"The essays are scathing and Chomsky brilliant, as a public intellectual engaged in a concerted and committed campaign to break the 'big lie' of an increasingly consolidated authoritarian state that has embarked on global military destruction in the name of humanitarian undertakings."--Shelley Walia, The Hindu
