Overview

The original edition of Letters from Lexington solidified Noam Chomsky's position as American's most distinguished critic of the media. In this new, updated edition, a new chapter, 'What Makes the Mainstream Media Mainstream', offers Chomsky's latest thinking on the role of the media in a rapidly changing world-especially in justifying U.S. government and corporate actions. Throughout the book, Chomsky's analyses of the politics of the Reagan and earlier Bush administrations offer a striking and surprisingly prescient perspective on the events, key players, and policies that shape America's national agenda under the current presidency of George W. Bush and the 'War on Terrorism'. Letters from Lexington has been called 'an indispensable antidote to TV 'news' and the verities found in major daily newspapers such as The New York Times.'
