Hegemony or Survival

Remember the theatrics of Hugo Chavez on the platte form of United Nations advising Americans to read or to reread Noam Chomsky.

Nothing substantial

Mr. Chomsky's book is suprisingly (or, perhaps not) thin on hard information. It contains his usual sweeping criticisms of US policy without any substantial factual foundation. He cites rumour as fact, makes statements such as 'as everyone knows' in lieu of solid footnoting and generally relies on his reputation rather than his reporting to bolster the arguments he presents. The book is alarmist which may account for it's popularity but there's nothing really there save a badly presented opinion.

    Absurd

    Even the title shows the author's failure too see the world as it is. There CAN NOT be survival without hegemony! His grasp of international relations is excetory.

    i'd rather be dead

    If you must read this book do it before you go to bed. Chomsky repeats himself more times than I could count. Chomsky repeats what you hear on the nightly news. Nothing new from this book.
