About this product
- DescriptionWhy did most of the American mainstream liberal intelligensia remain silent while atrocities were being committed in Vietnam? Chomsky's answer is that they t only participated, but provided the ideas that fuelled the war: that the Vietnamese peasantry needed to be pacified, that Vietnam was under the influence of Moscow and/or China, that America had an unfettered right to intervene, in Asia or anywhere. Chomsky argues that scholarly elites in newfound positions of influence used the mask of objectivity to promote self-serving ideas that proved disastrous to millions of Southeast Asians.
