Failed States: The Abuse of Power and the Assault on Democracy

by Noam Chomsky
£9.99   paperback  Penguin Books Ltd (2007)

Failed States: The Abuse of Power and the Assault on Democracy by Noam Chomsky The world's foremost critic of US foreign policy exposes the hollow promises of democracy in US actions abroad - and at home.
The United States has repeatedly asserted its right to use military force against 'failed states' around the globe. In this much-anticipated follow-up to his international bestseller Hegemony or Survival, Noam Chomsky turns the tables, showing how the United States itself shares features with other failed states - and therefore is increasingly a danger to its own people and to the world.
Foreceful, lucid and meticulously documented, Failed States offers a comprehensive analysis of a global superpower that has long claimed the right to reshape other nations. It topples governments it deems illegitimate, invades states judged to threaten its interestsm and imposes sanctions on regimes it opposes - while its own democratic institutions are in severe crisis, and its policies and practices recklessly place the world on the brink of nuclear and environmental disaster.
Systematically dismantling the United States' position as the world's arbiter of democracy, Failed States is Chomsky's most focused - and urgent - critique to date.
