The purpose of this book is to explore the significance and contemporary relevance of Noam Chomsky’s social and political thought. Chomsky is both a scholar and a political activist and has come to be regarded as a controversial figure in the two arenas. Although widely read, his works have been systematically relegated to the outer realms of academic scholarship and apparent obscurity, rather than being seen as a distinctive contribution to academic debates and the canon itself.
