Admired by some, condemned by others, and feared by all—the military might of the West is undeniably colossal. In On Western Terrorism, world-renowned intellectual Noam Chomsky discusses Western power and propaganda with filmmaker and investigative journalist Andre Vltchek. It offers the perfect introduction to Chomsky’s significant political thought and provides an accessible approach for anyone who wishes to better understand the West’s fraught role in the world.
 
Beginning with stories of the New York newsstand where Chomsky started his political education as a teenager, the discussion broadens out to encompass colonialism, imperial control, propaganda, the Arab Spring, and drone warfare. Chomsky and Vltchek offer a powerful critique of the legacy of colonialism, touching upon many countries including Syria, Nicaragua, Cuba, China, Chile, and Turkey.
 
Updated with a fresh design and a new foreword by Chomsky, On Western Terrorism remains an influential and powerful critique of the West’s role in the world, inspiring all who read it to think independently and critically. 
Review Quotes
New York Times
“Noam Chomsky is arguably the most important intellectual alive today.”
Richard Falk | Foreign Policy Journal
“Chomsky’s maturity has endowed him wisdom that acts as a complement to his astonishing command over the specifics of the whole spectrum of political concerns.”
Joe Turnbull | inkyneedles.com

“It is absolutely essential reading for anyone wishing to understand the current context of contemporary geo-politics by revealing the often-hidden histories that have given rise to it, as well as highlighting the pressing issues facing the world which are usually ignored going forward.”

John Green | Morning Star
“It makes for enlightening, provocative and revealing reading and it's a welcome antidote to the plethora of books and films on the 'horrors' of communism.”
 
Marx and Philosophy Review of Books
“Chomsky is undoubtedly one of the greatest radical thinkers and one should give him credit for the humility and curiosity he demonstrates throughout the book.”
