On Western Terrorism: From Hiroshima to Drone Warfare, New Edition by Noam Chomsky, Andre Vltchek
English | April 15, 2017 | ISBN: 0745399312 | PDF | 208 pages | 6 MB

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.
