In this pathbreaking work now with a new introduction Edward S Herman and Noam Chomsky show that contrary to the usual image of the news media as cantankerous obstinate and ubiquitous in their search for truth and defense of justice in their actual practice they defend the economic social and political agendas of the privileged groups that dominate domestic society the state and the global order .

Based on a series of case studies including the media s dichotomous treatment of worthy versus unworthy victims legitimizing and meaningless Third World elections and devastating critiques of media coverage of the U S wars against Indochina Herman and Chomsky draw on decades of criticism and research to propose a Propaganda Model to explain the media s behavior and performance Their new introduction updates the Propaganda Model and the earlier case studies and it discusses several other applications These include the manner in which the media covered the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement and subsequent Mexican financial meltdown of the media s handling of the protests against the World Trade Organization World Bank and International Monetary Fund in and and the media s treatment of the chemical industry and its regulation What emerges from this work is a powerful assessment of how propagandistic the U S mass media are how they systematically fail to live up to their self image as providers of the kind of information that people need to make sense of the world and how we can understand their function in a radically new way by Noam Chomsky, Edward S. Herman

div div div b It s hard to imagine any American reading this book and not seeing his country in a new and deeply troubling light i The New York Times Book Review i b div div br The United States has repeatedly asserted its right to intervene militarily against failed states around the globe In this much anticipated follow up to his international bestseller i Hegemony or Survival i Noam Chomsky turns the tables showing how the United States itself shares features with other failed states suffering from a severe democratic deficit eschewing domestic and international law and adopting policies that increasingly endanger its own citizens and the world Exploring the latest developments in U S foreign and domestic policy Chomsky reveals Washington s plans to further militarize the planet greatly increasing the risks of nuclear war He also assesses the dangerous consequences of the occupation of Iraq documents Washington s self exemption from international norms including the Geneva conventions and the Kyoto Protocol and examines how the U S electoral system is designed to eliminate genuine political alternatives impeding any meaningful democracy div div br Forceful lucid and meticulously documented i Failed States i offers a comprehensive analysis of a global superpower that has long claimed the right to reshape other nations while its own democratic institutions are in severe crisis Systematically dismantling the United States pretense of being the world s arbiter of democracy i Failed States i is Chomsky s most focused and urgent critique to date div div div, In Profit Over People Noam Chomsky takes on neoliberalism the pro corporate system of economic and political policies presently waging a form of class war worldwide By examining the contradictions between the democratic and market principles proclaimed by those in power and those actually practiced Chomsky critiques the tyranny of the few that restricts the public arena and enacts policies that vastly increase private wealth often with complete disregard for social and ecological consequences Combining detailed historical examples and uncompromising criticism Chomsky offers a profound sense of hope that social activism can reclaim people s rights as citizens rather than as consumers redefining democracy as a global movement not a global market, Two of the twentieth century s most influential thinkers debate a perennial question br In at the height of the Vietnam War and at a time of great political and social instability two of the world s leading intellectuals Noam Chomsky and Michel Foucault were invited by Dutch philosopher Fons Edlers to debate an age old question is there such a thing as innate human nature independent of our experiences and external influences br The resulting dialogue is one of the most original provocative and spontaneous exchanges to have occurred between contemporary philosophers and above all serves as a concise introduction to their basic theories What begins as a philosophical argument rooted in linguistics Chomsky and the theory of knowledge Foucault soon evolves into a broader discussion encompassing a wide range of topics from science history and behaviorism to creativity freedom and the struggle for justice in the realm of politics br In addition to the debate itself this volume features a newly written introduction by noted Foucault scholar John Rajchman and includes additional text by Noam Chomsky, Noam Chomsky s backpocket classic on wartime propaganda and opinion control begins by asserting two models of democracy one in which the public actively participates and one in which the public is manipulated and controlled According to Chomsky propaganda is to democracy as the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state and the mass media is the primary vehicle for delivering propaganda in the United States From an examination of how Woodrow Wilson s Creel Commission succeeded within six months in turning a pacifist population into a hysterical war mongering population to Bush Sr s war on Iraq Chomsky examines how the mass media and public relations industries have been used as propaganda to generate public support for going to war Chomsky further touches on how the modern public relations industry has been influenced by Walter Lippmann s theory of spectator democracy in which the public is seen as a bewildered herd that needs to be directed not empowered and how the public relations industry in the United States focuses on controlling the public mind and not on informing it Media Control is an invaluable primer on the secret workings of disinformation in democratic societies br br br i From the Audiobook Download edition i
