Noam Chomsky is one of America's most popular speakers, electrifying standing-room-only audiences all over the country as he dissects US foreign policy with insights like these:
- Contrary to what virtually everyone -- left or right -- says, the United States achieved its major objectives in Indochina. Vietnam was demolished. There's no danger that successful development there will provide a model for other nations in te region.
- At exactly the moment it invaded Panama...the Bush administration announced new high-technology sales to China [and] plans...to lift a ban on loans to Iraq...Compared to Bush's buddies in Baghdad and Beijing, Noriega looked like Mother Teresa.
- Prospects are pretty dim for Eastern Europe. The West has a plan for it -- they want to turn large parts of it into a new, easily exploitable part of the Third Word.
What Uncle Sam Really Wants is part of the Real Story Series of books. The Real Story Series is based on a simple idea -- political books don't have to be boring. Short, well-written and to the point, Real Story books are meant to be read.
