Description

In this remarkable study of global politics, Noam Chomsky offers a devastating critique of conventional definitions of the New World Order, so enthusiastically proclaimed by the United States.

It is, he posits, nothing more than an ingenious piece of 'historical engineering' whereby earlier pretexts for the Cold War have been deftly replaced by a new set of justifications for a largely unchanged Western agenda.

This work is an incisive assault on the legitimacy of the status quo in world politics. This book will interest students of political science, international studies and history.

COMMENT:

A refreshingly instructive book . . Chomsky is up-to-date in his understanding of what has been happening around the world. Hardly anyone can match his range of knowledge of current affairs.
