In Deterring Democracy, the impassioned dissident intellectual Noam Chomsky describes a world in which the United States exploits its advantage ruthlessly to enforce its national interests—and in the process tramples democratic movements.


“A volatile, serious contribution to the debate over American’s role as the globe’s sole remaining superpower.”

San Francisco Chronicle

“Chomsky is the Left’s answer to William F. Buckley. Deterring Democracy can sparkle with inspiration.”

Los Angeles Times

“[Offers] a deepened understanding of the dynamics of global politics before, during, and after the Cold War . . . A compendious and thought-provoking work.”

The New Statesman

“Noam Chomsky . . . is a major scholarly resource. Not to have read [him] . . . is to court genuine ignorance.”
