Useful to put the attacks in context, and hits at how we could have better responded, but it is in a question and answer format. This a format that always irritates me. It tends to feel disjointed and prevents a coherent analysis. ( )

Commentary. Interesting collection of interviews with Noam Chomsky following the September 11 terrorist attacks on the USA. I found it much more concise and readable than some of Chomsky's more academic efforts. ( )

My first Chomsky read. A real eye opener to US & International politics. ( )

'9-11' is a collection of interviews conducted by reporters from around the world with Noam Chomsky regarding the attack on the World Trade Center, its causes and potential responses by the U.S. government.

The information is very informative and educational, as Chomsky educates the reader about the ever expanding power of the U.S. government and the reasons for the attack upon the World Trade Center on that fateful day on September 11th 2001, and the inappropriateness of the government's response by declaring war, when other, more constructive – and less destructive – measures could have been employed.

For those who wish to look past the rhetoric of much of the mainstream media and are looking for a more factual account about the reasons for the 9-11 attacks and the U.S.'s response, I recommend this book highly. ( )

This book is a collection of hand selected and abridged interviews Noam Chomsky granted to numerous media outlets. These interviews occurred over a span of about one month after the September 11th attacks. The editor makes no attempt at explaining his exclusion of repetitive answers to keep the compendium unnecessarily redundant.

In regards to Mr. Chomsky, I did learn he has a more tempered idea about the 9-11 attacks than I perceived. While he will never provide the US government benefit of the doubt when it comes to "economic terrorism" from Vietnam to Nicaragua to al Shifa pharmaceutical plant, he does dispute a causal effect between bin Laden and the actions to the World Trade Center with "economic imperialism."

In short, while I don't agree with the linguist, I was surprised to learn more about his views. ( )
