Praise for Noam Chomsky
"An exploder of received truths."-New York Times
"Noam Chomsky is one of the most significant challengers of unjust power and delusions; he goes against every assumption about American altruism and huniatrianism."-Edward Said
"Reading Chomsky is like standing in a wind tunnel. With relentless logic, Chomsky bids us to listen closely to what our leaders tell us--and to discern what they are leaving out...The questions Chomsky raises will eventually have to be answered. Agree with him or not, we lose out by not listening."-Business Week
Praise for David Barsamian
