Noam Chomsky

Noam Chomsky is a political activist and social critic whose scathing criticisms of U.S. foreign policy and military interventions have earned him both accolades and death threats. In 1945 he entered the University of Pennsylvania, where he would earn a BA, MA, and PhD in linguistics. He joined the faculty of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1955. Now eighty-five, Chomsky has retired from active teaching duties at MIT, but he continues to travel and speak around the world. He is the author of Hegemony or Survival, Failed States, the best-selling 9-11, and many other books.
