Deterring Democracy by Noam Chomsky

Book Description

From World War II until the 1980s, the United States reigned supreme as both the economic and the military leader of the world. The major shifts in global politics that came about with the dismantling of the Eastern Bloc have left the United States unchallenged as the pre-eminent military power, but American economic might has declined drastically in the face of competition, first from Germany and Japan and more recently from the newly prosperous countries elsewhere. In this book, Noam Chomsky points to the potentially catastrophic consequences of this imbalance. He reveals a world in which the United States exploits its advantage ruthlessly to enforce its national interests - and in the process destroys weaker nations. Deterring Democracy offers a devastating analysis of American Imperialism, drawing alarming connections between its repression of information inside the US and its aggressive empire-building abroad.

UK Kirkus Review » The collapse of communism has left the hard left in a muddle: where can it now look for guidance? Here is an answer. Noam Chomsky, having turned his own field of linguistics upside-down in his 20s, has since become a - indeed the - leading American dissident. In this book he teaches that the modern radical should continue to hate the military-industrial complex that runs the United States of America and, through various multinationals, the bulk of world affairs; and should continue to beware of the disinformation handed out by the news media which are within governmental control. His densely argued, hard-hitting text maintains that no one who holds authority is fit to be trusted; he backs his case with sensational examples from recent Latin American history. This book will cheer political non-conformists, and depress those who approve things as they are. (Kirkus UK)
