Not classic Chomsky, but resounds with a truth we must face sooner or later: we have been responsible for a lot of unnecessary death. ( )

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. ( )
  chetankhullar | Aug 3, 2012 |
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. ( )
