Power and Terror: Noam Chomsky in Our Times

Noam Chomsky's voice may be controversial, but his incisive arguments, based on decades of research and analysis, deserve to be heard and considered. "Power and Terror" presents the latest in Chomsky's thinking, through interviews and public talks given in the spring of 2002. Chomsky places the terrorist attacks of 9/11 in the context of American foreign intervention throughout the postwar decades - in Vietnam, Central America, the Middle East, and elsewhere. Beginning with the fundamental principle that the exercise of violence against civilian populations is terror, Chomsky - in stark and uncompromising terms - challenges the United States to apply to its own actions the moral standards it demands of others.
