Power and Terror, Noam Chomsky's highly anticipated follow-up to 9-11, is drawn from a series of public talks that Chomsky gave during the spring of 2002, as well as a lengthy unpublished interview. It presents Chomsky's latest thinking on terrorism, U.S. foreign policy, and alternatives to militarism and violence as solutions to the world's problems. Chomsky challenges the United States to apply to its own actions the moral standards it demands of others, and arrives at a surprisingly optimistic conclusion rooted in his faith in the power of an informed public.

Judged in terms of the power, range, novelty, and influence of his thought, Noam Chomsky is arguably the most important intellectual alive. -- The New York Times On the one hand we have the established media, the respectable community of foreign affairs analysts, the government - on the other, Noam Chomsky. -- The Nation For Chomsky, the 'official doctrine' ... of military intervention to safeguard human rights is as much a sham as the 'New World Order' trumpeted during the Gulf War.' -- The Guardian
