Chomsky knows who’s powerful, who’s abusing their power, and what theyand weshould do about it. Over the years he’s managed to provoke both left and right through his relentless critiques of American foreign policy and culture in books such as On Power and Ideology, The Culture of Terrorism, Manufacturing Consent, and World Orders Old and New. One of the preeminent linguistic theorists of our time, Chomsky is Institute Professor of Modern Languages and Linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
