The Anti-Chomsky Reader

Listen to a sample

What to expect

Noam Chomsky’s defense of Pol Pot and the genocidal Khymer Rouge, as well as his bizarre associations with Holocaust revisionists, may surprise those who think they know what he believes. Other Chomsky views, such as his claim that the United States has taken the place of Nazi Germany on the world stage, will be more familiar. With Chomskyism growing here and abroad, Collier writes, “It is clearly time for a reckoning.”

The essays in this book provide a response to the millions of words Noam Chomsky has written in the past forty years. Examining Chomsky’s controversial ideas about various foreign and domestic issues and even the legitimacy of the linguistics theories on which his reputation rests, The Anti-Chomsky Reader explores the dark corners of what the New Yorker recently called “one of the greatest minds of the twentieth century.”

Critics Review

  • “After reading this book, no one will be able to rely on anything Chomsky says without independently check every claim.”

    Alan M. Dershowitz, New York Times bestselling author
  • “To read this fine book is to receive an unsparing view of what lies behind the Chomsky curtain.”

    National Review
  • “Collier, Horowitz, and their six other authors have produced a book that has long been needed. It provides a penetrating coverage of the disgraceful career of a disgraceful but very influential man, who has so far avoided a criticism as thoroughgoing as this.”

    New Criterion
  • “In turning Chomsky’s virtues against him, The Anti-Chomsky Reader offers a challenge to those who fixate on only the crimes in US history. At its best, the volume transcends the pro-Chomsky/anti-Chomsky debate to focus on larger outcomes in a post-9/11 world.”
