Failed States Summary


Failed States: The Abuse of Power and the Assault on Democracy by Noam Chomsky

The United States asserts the right to use military force against `failed states' around the globe. But as Noam Chomsky argues in this devastating analysis, America shares features with many of the regimes it insists are failing and constitute a danger to their neighbours.

Offering a comprehensive and radical examination of America past and present, Chomsky shows how this lone superpower - which topples foreign governments, invades states that threaten its interests and imposes sanctions on regimes it opposes - has stretched its own democratic institutions to breaking point. And how an America in crisis places the world ever closer to the brink of nuclear and environmental disaster.
