Because We Say So




Essays on American hegemony from the West's most prominent critic of US imperialism

For over fifty years, one fact has dominated global politics: the United States can respond to any challenge to its power however it sees fit. Whatever the world may think, US actions are legitimate simply because they say so.

With charateristic clarity and authority, Chomsky takes American imperialism head-on. From Edward Snowden and Palestinian-Israeli relations to political philosophy and how we structure democracy, Because We Say So offers a cross-section of perspectives on the question of America's ongoing hegemony.
