Noam Chomsky?s defense of Pol Pot and the genocidal Khmer Rouge, as well as his bizarre associations with Holocaust revisionists, may surprise those who think they know what he believes. Other Chomsky commitments? his claim that the United States has taken the place of Nazi Germany on the world stage, and his ferocious hatred of Israel? will be more familiar. Either way, with Chomskyism growing at home and abroad, as Peter Collier writes in his introduction to The Anti- Chomsky Reader, ?it is clearly time for a reckoning.? The essays in this book provide a response to the millions of words Noam Chomsky has written in the past forty years. Examining Chomsky?s ideas about ?moral equivalence? between the US and the USSR during the Cold War, his long support for totalitarianism in Southeast Asia, his notion that 9/11 marked payback time for America and even the legitimacy of the linguistics theories on which his reputation rests, The Anti-Chomsky Reader explores the dark corners of what the New Yorker recently called ?one of the greatest minds of the 20th century.
