About the Author
NOAM CHOMSKY is known throughout the world for his political and philosophical writings as well as for his groundbreaking linguistics work. He has taught at Massachusetts Institute of Technology since 1955 and remains one of America's most uncompromising voices of dissent.
- "9-11 was practically the only counter-narrative out there at a time when questions tended to be drowned out by a chorus, led by the entire United States Congress, of 'God Bless America.' . . . it is possible that, if the United States goes the way of nineteenth-century Britain, Chomsky's interpretation will be the standard among historians a hundred years from now." --New Yorker
- "A badly needed corrective to news coverage of the present-day 'war on terrorism.'"
--Norman Solomon, San Francisco Chronicle Review
- "Every word of 9-11 is more relevant than ever." --Amnesty International Journal (Ireland)
- "Chomsky laments that the U.S. government largely dismissed these human rights problems in its quest to "secure our interests." The invasion of Afghanistan was far from the first time NATO overran unstable civilian populations in the search for terrorists (Chomsky offers several examples in the book) and, as we now know, it was not the last."
