Book Description

 Described by the New York Times as an exploder of received truths, Noam Chomsky is an articulate opponent of political hypocrisy, state brutality, and abuse of power. Rogue States is the result of his tireless efforts to measure the worlds superpowers by their own standards and to hold them responsible for the acts they commit in the name of their people. Chomsky also turns his penetrating gaze towards continuing US involvement in the Middle East, South Asia, the Carribbean, and Latin America to trace the enduring combined effects of military domination and economic imperialism on these regions. Throughout, Chomsky reveals the United States increasingly open dismissal of United Nations resolutions, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and international legal precedent in justifying its motives and actions. As his analysis of US statecraft and warmongering amply reveal, the rule of law has been reduced to a mere nuisance in the United States brazen did for the title of rogue state. The United State and its allies come in for particular scrutiny for their numerous blatant violations of the very international laws they claim to uphold. With analysis of the United Statess bombing campaign against Iraq, NATOs intervention in Kosovo, US support for a regime of terror in East Timor, and the political crisis in Colombia, Chomsky interrogates the rhetoric of Western foreign policy to reveal the insidious interests behind insupportable actions from paralyzing economic sanctions to surgical military strikes. Naom Chomsky, Institute Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is a world-renowned linguist, philosopher, and political analyst. He writes extensively and lectures around the world on international affairs, US foreign policy, and human rights. He has published many books, including Fateful Triangle: The United States, Israel and the Palestinians.
