Item Description...
A recent New Yorker article called Noam Chomsky "one of the finest minds of the twentieth century." This description is based on the MIT professor's writings on linguistics in the 1950s; but beginning with his criticism of the Vietnam War in the 1960s, Chomsky became much better known for his radical politics than for his theories of language. Over the past forty years he has gained a devoted following in the United States and Europe for his increasingly bitter-some say hysterical-censure of U.S. "crimes." Chomsky has complained about being ignored by mainstream publications such as the New York Times, but in fact his steady stream of polemical works, like the best-selling 9-11, have made him the center of a veritable cult. In The Anti-Chomsky Reader, editors Peter Collier and David Horowitz have assembled a set of essays that analyze Chomsky's intellectual career and the evolution of his anti-Americanism. The essays in this provocative book focus on subjects such as Chomsky's bizarre involvement with Holocaust revisionism, his apologies for Khmer Rouge tyrant Pol Pot, and his claim that America's policies in Latin America in the 1980s were comparable to Nazism. Scholar Paul Bogdanor writes about Chomsky's hatred of Israel. Ronald Radosh and David Horowitz discuss his gloating reaction to the September 11 attack. Linguists Paul Postal and Robert Levine reevaluate Chomsky's linguistics and find the same qualities there that others see in his politics: "a deep contempt for the truth, descents into incoherence, and verbal abuse of those who disagree with him." The Anti-Chomsky Reader presents a fascinating composite portrait of a man who arguably is our most influential public intellectual.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Miserable Failure  Feb 12, 2008
First I would like to address some issues that come up in the other reviews on this page, and then I'll get into the "book". They put Chomsky as an "Anti-American" and Marxist who hates Jewish people. His use of free speech is more American than the blind support of Israel and hatred of people who follow the ideologies of Marx (which he doesn't). Noam Chomsky isn't a Marxist, he is a social libertarian. Misinformation is not a great way to criticize an author, it just shows ignorance. Many of the points brought against Chomsky are about small issues like a single quote from one of his books, but the criticism is out of context and misleading. \

I would like to make a special response to the charges of antisemitism that have been insinuated against Avram 'Noam' Chomsky ( ). He has been tied to holocaust deniers by standing up merely for freedom of speech, and seen as critical of the Jewish people for being critical of Israel. But objecting to a state must never be confused with objecting to the individual people.

This book is a vast collection of the above mentioned deceptions and half truths. There is more wrong with this book then I could list off without a book of my own. It is sad to see the work of a man who lives a life which represents the freedoms that America itself should represent, attacked by those who have not made the effort, at least, to understand the work.
Read if you can't look in the mirror  Jan 19, 2008
I read much of the book at the bookstore and don't know why I gave it any of my time. The arguments are very superficial. For example, the book makes a big deal about Chomsky supporting a man losing his free speech. This is an old story, pretty much the only story a lot of the media ever covered on the one of the world's greatest intellectuals. You can be in support of someone's freespeech and not support their views--plain and simple. Enough said.

The other arguments leave out the whole picture and are pretty invaluable. This book might make some feel better that they don't read Chomsky but that's because they can't look at themselves and their own country becuase they're drones of some kind. Chomsky presents much of the truth, and it's not pretty much of the time. This book just distorts the truth.
Imperialist Propaganda  Nov 15, 2007
I have not read this book, and do not need to. After one reviewer compared Chomsky to Grima Wormtonge in The Lord of the Rings, I had to laugh. Any one who has read Chomsky will know that these pathetic attempts to undermine one of the only people who has a pretty clear idea of what is happening in the world today are just one more attempt by the imperialists to create misinformation. America is a country founded on genocide and control and the real apologists are those who would justify our terrorist actions agasinst the rest of the world. But for those readers who want to continue living in an ethnocentric fantasy world where America is a benevolent super power fighting evil terrorists, this book will probably provide plenty of self-deluding niceties.
More rant than objective review  Oct 26, 2007
There are a ton of reviews here about this that go on and on and on. I am sure they have put all of you to sleep. YAWN. This material is so subjective, that I doubt any review can do anything this personal justice.

My feeling on this book is simple - It seemed and read more like a "We don't like Chomsky, so we are going to rip apart everything he has ever said or written".

I do not feel it was honest analysis. It felt like two angry little children trying to cash in on the Chomsky name. It felt more like two little kids using big words, yet, essentially saying, "Not uh, Not uh. See, I told you so." and nothing more than that.

Was it boring. YES! Wow, I think reading every DVD player installation manual ever printed would have been more enjoyable. Really.

lowest form of brown-stuff  Sep 15, 2007
Chomsky has been rated as the world's no 1 intellectual only partly because of his groundbreaking work in linguistics ( he is sometimes called the Einstein of linguistics), but mainly because his political criticism/journalism has, despite every obstruction from the powerful and almost total blackout by the media (though his name has cropped up more often recently), worked it's way over 40 years into the mind's of millions as the most lucid, thorough and consistent appraisal of the inadequacies of the 'system' we live under and of the venality and inhumanity of the elites who run it.
There are increasingly many critics of his linguistic work, as of Einstein's work; some may quibble with his style - I think he overuses elaborate sarcasms to the extent that, while always entertaining, they sometimes necessitate a couple of readings to get the point; he may get things wrong occasionally - he is the first to admit this - he doesn't claim to be an infallible prophet, but I find it remarkable how hard it is to find anything at all that he did get wrong, which is why his critics are usually reduced to misrepresenting him i.e. the most recurring slander that he praised Pol Pot - in fact, at the time of the initial Khmer Rouge takeover, Chomsky asked why the media were giving so much attention to alleged crimes in Cambodian for which, AT THE TIME. there was next to no substantial evidence, while the media ignored the concurrent Indonesian massacres in East Timor for which, AT THE TIME, there was massive evidence - because Indonesia was 'our type of people'. Like everyone else he has since accepted the substantial evidence against the Pol Pot regime and has, like John Pilger, written much on the support by the USA and the UK for his regime after their crimes were well known; after the Khmer Rouge were ousted and survived as guerrilla groups in the forest, the USA/UK recognised them as the legitimate government of Cambodia, and pressurised the UN to accept a Khmer Rouge as the rep for Cambodia at the UN. If you want the rest of the story read Chomsky or Pilger.
But to cricise Chomsky for bias, dishonesty and all the rest is just slander. It takes a lot of time and work to shake of the propagandised view of the world fed to us by the rich man's media - if you read Chomsky and Pilger you might want to check out their statements with further reading, all of which takes time and money - more than most people can afford! So I can understand people being skeptical and reluctant to accept that practically everything they've taken for granted about the world is untrue. But at least one good thing has come out of the Bush preisidency - the barefaced mendacity over Iraq, Hurricane Katrina, the stolen elections and so much else has at least raised questions in a lot more minds.
I've already said more than this nasty little book merits; there is a species of hack who makes a living by pretending to be left, liberal, caring sharing (or something) while attacking a mythological 'left' for holding views that in fact no-one of the 'left' actually holds, and Chomsky, being the most enduring, prolific and articulate spokesman for the human race, is their most common target. The author and editor of the anti-Chomsky reader are of that species of hack. They are loathsome, malignant intellectual dwarves.
Don't waste your time and money - read all you can get of Chomsky and Pilger instead. If there is a future in which books can be freely read and published (in whatever format)Chomsky will be revered in the way we revere the great Greek and Roman writers, as the most perceptive analystInterventions (City Lights Open Media) of our times.
