Description - Because We Say So by Noam Chomsky
Covering subjects as diverse as climate change, terrorism, cyberwar, the Middle East, state power and the threat to democracy, Chomsky shows time and again where the real truth lies.
Because We Say So is Noam Chomsky's essential counter punch to American hegemony
In 1962, the eminent statesman Dean Acheson enunciated a principle that has dominated global politics ever since- that no legal issue arises when the United States responds to a challenge to its 'power, position, and prestige'. In short, whatever the world may think, U.S. actions are legitimate because they say so.
Spanning the impact of Edward Snowden's whistleblowing and Palestinian-Israeli relations to deeper reflections on political philosophy and the importance of a commons to democracy, Because We Say So takes American imperialism head on.
'Noam Chomsky is one of a small band of individuals fighting a whole industry. And that makes him not only brilliant, but heroic' Arundhati Roy
'The world's greatest public intellectual' Observer
