By: Edward S. Herman (author), Noam Chomsky (author)Paperback
Only 2 in stock
The second volume of The Political Economy of Human Rights remains one of the most controversial works produced by Chomsky to date. In a much discussed chapter on Cambodia, Chomsky and Herman questioned official Western narratives on the Khmer Rouge and suggested that the evidence available did not match up to the assertions being made at that time. These claims would resurface in a recent controversy with the Continental philosopher Slavoj Zizek and readers will now be able to judge for themselves the veracity of Zizek's claims. The work also contains important analysis of Western interventions across Indochina, including Vietnam and Laos, and provides a searing critique of American imperial aspirations in the region. For too long now, many important books by Noam Chomsky have been left to languish. Introducing Pluto's 'Chomsky Perspectives' series: a collectible, beautiful new list, with cover design by David Pearson. Including both enduring favourites and neglected essentials, these books will appeal to the serious Chomsky reader.
Noam Chomsky is a world renowned linguist and one of our foremost social critics. He is Institute Professor in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at MIT and the author of numerous books for Pluto Press.
