Overview
According to The New York Times, Noam Chomsky is arguably the most important intellectual alive. But he isn t easy to read . . . or at least he wasn t until these books came along. Made up of intensively edited speeches and interviews, they offer something not found anywhere else: pure Chomsky, with every dazzling idea and penetrating insight intact, delivered in clear, accessible, reader-friendly prose.
Published as four short books in the famous Real Story seriesWhat Uncle Sam Really Wants; The Prosperous Few and the Restless Many; Secrets, Lies and Democracy; and The Common Goodthey ve collectively sold almost 600,000 copies.
And they continue to sell year after year after year because Chomsky s ideas become, if anything, more relevant as time goes by. For example, twenty years ago he pointed out that in 1970, about 90% of international capital was used for trade and long-term investmentmore or less productive thingsand 10% for speculation. By 1990, those figures had reversed. As we know, speculation continued to increase exponentially. We re paying the price now for not heeding him them.
