Annotated Bibliography on Noam Chomsky
1. Achbar, Mark. Manufacturing Consent : Noam Chomsky and the Media. DVD. Montreal, Zeitgeist Films, 2002.

This DVD (available in the FAC) focuses on Chomsky’s opinions on ideological manipulation.

2. Barsky, Robert. Noam Chomsky: A Life of Dissent. Cambridge: MIT Press, 1997.
This biography will help us understand the background of his life and help connect his diverse political interests throughout his life- he write his first article at 10!
3. Cogswell, David. Chomsky for Beginners. Writers and Readers Publishing, 1996.
Though illustrated, this is the place to start. If one has no idea where Chomsky is on the political scale, this is an easy way to get a general overview.
4. Cohen, Noah. “Noam Chomsky and ‘Left’ Apologetics for Injustice in Palestine.” Axis

of Logic. 23 Aug 2004.
This is a thorough critical analysis of Chomsky’s views on Palestine.
5. Collier, Peter ed. The Anti-Chomsky Reader. San Francisco: Encounter Books, 2004.
This is a right-wing attack on Chomsky and delves into many subjects. It will be helpful to know the opposition to Chomsky during the game.
6. Gancarski, Anthony. “Does Noam Chomsky Hate America?” 24 Oct 2003.

This article will be a helpful response if anyone attacks Chomsky by saying that he hates America (as Fox TV personalities have done).

7. Junkerman, John. Power and Terror: Noam Chomsky in our Times. DVD. Brooklyn:

First Run/Icarus Films, 2002.

This DVD (available in the FAC) focuses on the September 11 terrorist attacks and American foreign intervention.

Video Group, 2005.

9. McGilvray, James. The Cambridge Companion to Chomsky. Cambridge: Cambridge

University Press, 2005.

While this book does not have articles on the Arab-Israeli Conflict in particular, its authors try to consolidate Chomsky’s theories into themes. This would be helpful if something happened in the game that Chomsky has not addressed in one of his books or articles.
10. McGuire, Lawrence. “Eight Ways to Smear Noam Chomsky.” CounterPunch. 9 Oct


This is a helpful summary of some of the baser accusations leveled at Chomsky. This will be helpful to know what is coming in the game.

15. Barsamian, David. “Imperial Ambition.” Monthly Review. May 2003. interview with Noam Chomsky.


An actual blog by Noam Chomsky. I believe it would be useful in the sense that we would get to see what and how he writes on the spot (since that’s how most blogs tend to be used as).

The official website of Noam Chomsky.


An interview with Chomsky which contains his views on Corporate Control of the Internet.


An interview with Chomsky over 9/11. This interview was done just a week after he attacks therefore I thought it would be a good source in regards to getting Chomsky’s immediate, raw feelings on the attacks.


This interview contains some of Chomsky’s views on foreign policy particularly on the Muslim world.


A very detailed biography of Chomsky


A counter point to many of Chomsky’s arguments and views. I thought this would be good because it’s always important to take into account the other side. I thought it would also provide balance.


This website talks about Chomsky’s immediate response to 9/11 and has a few good links.


This contains some information on Chomsky’s current place of employment (MIT) and his occupation.


An extremely useful website since it contains links to many of Chomsky’s books, articles interviews etc.
