Chomsky dissects the events of just one year - 1986 - as America was at the height of the Reagan Era. He describes American involvement in acts of supreme state terror, both open and clandestine, to present a case study which has great relevance today and whose lessons must never be forgotten.

Noam Chomsky is a world renowned linguist and one of America's foremost social critics. He is Institute Professor in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at MIT and the author of numerous books for Pluto Press.From Library Journal:
Chomsky, linguist and political essayist, continues his critique of President Reagan's Central American policy begun in Turning the Tide ( LJ 4/1/86), in which he argued that the United States has opposed human rights and democratization in the region to advance our economic interests. Here the thesis is extended to the Iran-contra scandal. Chomsky's documentation neatly supports his logic. Leftist adherents will applaud, while the majoritydepicted as perpetrators or dupes of military-based state capitalismwill ignore the book or dismiss it as rhetoric. But Chomsky has a point of view not frequently encountered in the press. For larger public and academic libraries. Kenneth F. Kister, Pinellas Park P.L., Fla.
