American power and the new mandarins : historical and political essays (1969)
by Noam Chomsky
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 156584775X, Paperback)Back in print, the seminal work by "arguably the most important intellectual alive" (The New York Times).
American Power and the New Mandarins is Noam Chomsky's first political book, widely considered to be among the most cogent and powerful statements against the American war in Vietnam. Long out of print, this collection of early, seminal essays helped to establish Chomsky as a leading critic of United States foreign policy. These pages mount a scathing critique of the contradictions of the war, and an indictment of the mainstream, liberal intellectuals—the "new mandarins"—who furnished what Chomsky argued was the necessary ideological cover for the horrors visited on the Vietnamese people.
As America's foreign entanglements deepen by the month, Chomsky's lucid analysis is a sobering reminder of the perils of imperial diplomacy.
