About this product
- DescriptionBecause We Say So is Noam Chomsky's essential counter punch to American hegemony. In 1962, the eminent statesman Dean Acheson enunciated a principle that has dominated global politics ever since: that legal issue arises when the United States responds to a challenge to its 'power, position, and prestige'. In short, whatever the world may think, US actions are legitimate because they say so. Spanning the impact of Edward Swden's whistleblowing and Palestinian-Israeli relations to deeper reflections on political philosophy and the importance of a commons to democracy, Because We Say So takes American imperialism head on. Noam Chomsky is one of a small band of individuals fighting a whole industry. And that makes him t only brilliant, but heroic. (Arundhati Roy). The world's greatest public intellectual. (Observer).
