Because We Say So is Noam Chomsky's essential counter punch to American hegemony

In 1962, the eminent statesman Dean Acheson enunciated a principle that has dominated global politics ever since: that no legal issue arises when the United States responds to a challenge to its 'power, position, and prestige'. In short, whatever the world may think, U.S. actions are legitimate because they say so.

Spanning the impact of Edward Snowden's whistleblowing and Palestinian-Israeli relations to deeper reflections on political philosophy and the importance of a commons to democracy, Because We Say So takes American imperialism head on.

'Noam Chomsky is one of a small band of individuals fighting a whole industry. And that makes him not only brilliant, but heroic' Arundhati Roy

'The world's greatest public intellectual' Observer

Review:

Publisher's description. From Edward Snowden and Palestinian-Israeli relations to political philosophy and the nature of democracy, Because We Say So offers a cross-section of perspectives on the question of America's ongoing hegemony. (Penguin)

Chomsky is one of a small band of individuals fighting a whole industry. And that makes him not only brilliant, but heroic (Arundhati Roy)

Chomsky's work is neither theoretical, nor ideological: it is passionate and righteous (Times Literary Supplement)

The world's greatest public intellectual (Observer)
