Noam Chomsky s backpocket classic on wartime propaganda and opinion control begins by asserting two models of democracy one in which the public actively participates and one in which the public is manipulated and controlled According to Chomsky propaganda is to democracy as the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state and the mass media is the primary vehicle for delivering propaganda in the United States From an examination of how Woodrow Wilson s Creel Commission succeeded within six months in turning a pacifist population into a hysterical war mongering population to Bush Sr s war on Iraq Chomsky examines how the mass media and public relations industries have been used as propaganda to generate public support for going to war Chomsky further touches on how the modern public relations industry has been influenced by Walter Lippmann s theory of spectator democracy in which the public is seen as a bewildered herd that needs to be directed not empowered and how the public relations industry in the United States focuses on controlling the public mind and not on informing it Media Control is an invaluable primer on the secret workings of disinformation in democratic societies br br br i From the Audiobook Download edition i, We all know what Noam Chomsky is against His scathing analysis of everything that s wrong with our society reaches more and more people every day His brilliant critiques of among other things capitalism imperialism domestic repression and government propaganda have become mini publishing industries unto themselves But in this flood of publishing and republishing very little ever gets said about what exactly Chomsky stands for his own personal politics his vision of the future br br Not that is until i Chomsky on Anarchism i a groundbreaking new book that shows a different side of this best selling author the anarchist principles that have guided him since he was a teenager This collection of Chomsky s essays and inter views includes numerous pieces that have never been published before as well as rare material that first saw the light of day in hard to find pamphlets and anarchist periodicals Taken together they paint a fresh picture of Chomsky showing his lifelong involvement with the anarchist community his constant commitment to nonhierarchical models of political organization and his hopes for a future world without rulers br br For anyone who s been touched by Chomsky s trenchant analysis of our current situation as well as anyone looking for an intelligent and coherent discussion of anarchism itself look no further than i Chomsky on Anarchism i br br b Noam Chomsky b is one of the world s leading intellectuals the father of modern linguistics an outspoken media and foreign policy critic and tireless activist He lives in Boston Massachusetts, i Librarian s note There are Alternate Cover Editions for this edition of this book a href https www goodreads com book show here title here rel nofollow here a and a href https www goodreads com book show here title here rel nofollow here a i br br In this pathbreaking work now with a new introduction Edward S Herman and Noam Chomsky show that contrary to the usual image of the news media as cantankerous obstinate and ubiquitous in their search for truth and defense of justice in their actual practice they defend the economic social and political agendas of the privileged groups that dominate domestic society the state and the global order br br Based on a series of case studies including the media s dichotomous treatment of worthy versus unworthy victims legitimizing and meaningless Third World elections and devastating critiques of media coverage of the U S wars against Indochina Herman and Chomsky draw on decades of criticism and research to propose a Propaganda Model to explain the media s behavior and performance Their new introduction updates the Propaganda Model and the earlier case studies and it discusses several other applications These include the manner in which the media covered the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement and subsequent Mexican financial meltdown of the media s handling of the protests against the World Trade Organization World Bank and International Monetary Fund in and and the media s treatment of the chemical industry and its regulation What emerges from this work is a powerful assessment of how propagandistic the U S mass media are how they systematically fail to live up to their self image as providers of the kind of information that people need to make sense of the world and how we can understand their function in a radically new way, In Noam Chomsky comments on the September th attacks the new war on terrorism Osama bin Laden U S involvement with Afghanistan media control and the long term implications of America s military attacks abroad Informed by his deep understanding of the gravity of these issues and the global stakes demonstrates Chomsky s impeccable knowledge of U S foreign policy in the Middle East and South Asia and sheds light on the rapidly shifting balance of world power Speaking out against escalating violence Chomsky critically examines the United States own foreign policy record and considers what international institutions might be employed against underground networks and national states accused of terrorism s analysis still stands as a measure of how well the media is able to serve its role of informing the citizenry so crucial to our democracy in times of war
