Read full description of the books:
I'm impressed that Chomsky, in the immediate wake of 9/11, recognized the many counter-currents in society that advocated a more nuanced approach to dealing with the Taliban in order to fight Al-Qaeda. More importantly, he immediately distinguished between the peaceful nature of the vast majority of Islam and the nature of the terrorists who attacked us in its name.
I once had the privilege of listening to Alan Story speak about non-violence. Alan, a South African minister, was conscripted into the South African army to help enforce the apartheid. Alan tried to become a conscientious objector and was arrested by his government for doing so. One thing he said about foreign policy that really hit me was, "When the only tool in your toolbox is a hammer, all your problems start looking like nails." He was referring to the Department of Defense's handling of post-9/11 foreign policy issues in Iraq. Our efforts to try and seek out less devastating means for resolving that conflict were pitifully weak. To win the fight against radicalism and religious extremism we need more tools in our toolbox than a hammer.

Read information about the authorAvram Noam Chomsky is an American linguist, philosopher, political activist, author, and lecturer. He is an Institute Professor and professor emeritus of linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Chomsky is credited with the creation of the theory of generative grammar, considered to be one of the most significant contributions to the field of linguistics made in the 20th century. He also helped spark the cognitive revolution in psychology through his review of B. F. Skinner's Verbal Behavior, in which he challenged the behaviorist approach to the study of behavior and language dominant in the 1950s. His naturalistic approach to the study of language has affected the philosophy of language and mind. He is also credited with the establishment of the Chomsky hierarchy, a classification of formal languages in terms of their generative power. Beginning with his critique of the Vietnam War in the 1960s, Chomsky has become more widely known for his media criticism and political activism, and for his criticism of the foreign policy of the United States and other governments.
According to the Arts and Humanities Citation Index in 1992, Chomsky was cited as a source more often than any other living scholar during the 1980–1992 time period, and was the eighth-most cited scholar in any time period.
