Summary

Here, for the first time, is the Spanish translation of Noam Chomsky's New York Times bestseller Interventions.Since 2002, Chomsky has written a column for The New York Times Syndicate in which he cogently and critically examines the leading issues of the day. These columns have been published in major newspapers around the globe, including the International Herald Tribune, and have helped gain an even larger global audience for Chomsky's views. Yet few have appeared in the pages of US or Canadian newspapers, and only one of the columns included here appeared in the pages of The New York Times itself.Concise and fiercely argued, Intervenciones covers the invasion and occupation of Iraq, the Bush presidency, Israel and Palestine, Israel's invasion of Lebanon, national security, the escalating threat of nuclear warfare, and more. It is a powerful and accessible new book from one of America's foremost political intellectuals and dissidents.Noam Chomsky has taught for many years at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he is Institute Professor in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy. His 1957 book Syntactic Structures is widely credited with having revolutionized the field of modern linguistics. Chomsky is the author of numerous best-selling political works, including Hegemony or Survival (Metropolitan/Owl).Eduardo Galeano is the author of The Open Veins of Latin America and many other classics. He lives in Montevideo, Uruguay.
