Reviews

Though sometimes distracted by topics like Hurricane Katrina or South America, the essays in Chomsky?s latest, written for the New York Times Syndicate between September 2002 and July ?06, are largely concerned with Iraq, seen through the combative, populist (though by no means popular) convictions that the linguist and activist has become known for. His long-standing criticism of Israel makes it the next-most discussed topic; he accuses Israel of kidnapping and killing civilians and wonders why no has yet called for a Desert Storm-style invasion of the Jewish state. Though he clearly represents a voice unfettered by elitist concerns, tainted money or fear of reprisal, what comes through most strongly-indeed, what drives his arguments-isn?t special insight into the issues at hand, but simple disgust with American imperialism and hypocrisy. Many pieces have been rendered irrelevant by events (though Chomsky offers footnoted updates), and he?s no prose stylist. Few newspaper or magazines print Chomsky?s work; given his views and his gloom-and-doom style, it?s understandable. (July) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
