Noam Chomsky talks about U.S. foreign policy and other matters at an event hosted by Back Pages Books in Waltham, Massachusetts.  This event coincided with the publishing of his book Interventions. Professor Chomsky talked to Back Pages owner Alex Green and then took questions from audience members.

Noam Chomsky, Institute Professor (Emeritus) at MIT, is the author of many books on American foreign policy, including Failed States: The Abuse of Power and the Assault on Democracy and What We Say Goes: Conversations on U.S. Power in a Changing World.

Hope you enjoy it:

Noam Chomsky is perhaps

.... one of a dozen or so truly intellectual people in U.S. who possess also a Big Heart. Of course, there are many good people in America. However, as a whole, there are not that many with the intellectual power of people like Noam Chomsky, E. O. Wilson, and a few others.

People like Chomsky represent what is Best about America. It is people like him who make the world think that there is perhaps still hope for America. That all these aggressions are but a temporary thing. Of a failed and morally corrupt administration.

Let's hope that America does not make the same mistake that it did 2000. - Let's Hope ...

Some 'Reviews' Of This Book

by Haj Seyd Mammad on

Chicago Sun Times:
Interventions' covers the Iraq invasion and occupation, the Bush presidency, Israel and Palestine, national security and more.

The New York Times Book Review:
Chomsky is a global phenomenon . . . perhaps the most widely read voice on foreign policy on the planet.

Newark Star Ledger:
These columns are littered with unpopular but accurate caveats to the Bush administration's dream of unchallenged global dominance.

Vanity Fair:
Unwavering political contrarian Noam Chomsky smart-bombs the U.S. military's global 'Interventions'. Shock and awe!

Boston Phoenix:
Noam Chomsky sounds off on US military interventions since 9/11.

The Morning
It continues to amaze me that, for all the demonizing of Chomsky by certain regressive elements, his analyses are sensible and fact-based. If you are unfamiliar with his work, this would be a good introduction.


Thank you for posting this video ...

On the front page of, there is an article by a fellow named 'AmirAshkan Pishroo' making disparaging remarks about Noam Chomsky.

I am glad that people can watch Noam Chomsky for themselves, and make their own judgments about him. I believe that it would do Mr. Pishroo a lot of good if he were to watch this video also!

Tks again
