A collection of essays written by Chomsky in the late 1990s, all of which subvert the United States foreign policy discourse

Rogue States is a collection of essays written by Chomsky in the late 1990s, all of which subvert the United States foreign policy discourse and the notion of the “rogue state”, turning the focus of criticism inwards and demonstrating how Western powers fail to uphold their own standards of conduct. Among the topics considered are the Balkans Crisis, the embargo against Cuba, and US intervention in Latin America, all of which provide important lessons for today from one of our most eminent and insightful teachers.

Noam Chomsky is one of the most cited scholars in history and has profoundly shaped contemporary understanding of American politics. An ally of anarcho-syndicalists the world over, he has authored numerous books on linguistics, history and politics. He is Institute Professor (emeritus) in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at MIT, and Laureate Professor of Linguistics and Agnese Nelms Haury Chair in the Program in Environment and Social Justice at the University of Arizona.
