Who rules the world?

"Noam Chomsky is the worlds foremost intellectual activist. Over the last half century no one has done more to question the great global powers who govern our lives forensically scrutinizing policies and actions calling our politicians institutions and media to account The culmination of years of work Who Rules the World is Chomskys definitive intellectual investigation into the major issues of our times From the dark history of the US and Cuba to Chinas global rise from torture memos to sanctions on Iran Chomsky explores how Americas talk of freedom and human rights is often at odds with its actions Delving deep into the conflicts in Iraq Afghanistan and IsraelPalestine he provides nuanced surprising insights into the workings of modernday imperial power The worlds political and financial elite have become ever more insulated from democratic constraints on their actions Chomsky shines a powerful light on this inconvenient truth With climate change and nuclear proliferation threatening the survival of our civilization the message has never been more pertinent or more urgent the need for an engaged and active public to steer the world away from disaster grows ever greater Fiercely outspoken and rigorously argued Who Rules the World is an indispensable guide to how things really are from the lone authoritative voice courageous and clearsighted enough to tell us the truth.”
