Reviews

'Noam Chomsky is arguably the most important intellectual alive today' -- New York Times
'Chomsky's maturity has endowed him wisdom that acts as a complement to his astonishing command over the specifics of the whole spectrum of political concerns' -- Richard Falk, Foreign Policy Journal
'It is absolutely essential reading for anyone wishing to understand the current context of contemporary geo-politics by revealing the often-hidden histories that have given rise to it, as well as highlighting the pressing issues facing the world which are usually ignored going forward' -- Joe Turnbull, inkyneedles.com
'It makes for enlightening, provocative and revealing reading and it's a welcome antidote to the plethora of books and films on the 'horrors' of communism' -- John Green, Morning Star
'Chomsky is undoubtedly one of the greatest radical thinkers and one should give him credit for the humility and curiosity he demonstrates throughout the book.' -- Marx and Philosophy Review of Books
