<span style='font-size: 14px;'>The Washington Connection</span>The Washington Connection
& Third World Fascism
The Political Economy of Human Rights:
Vol. I

by Noam Chomsky & Edward S Herman

The Washington Connection argues with devastating logic and overwhelming documentation that the purpose of US global policy is to make the world safe for exploitation by US corporate interests and that this has required and continues to require the installation and support of brutal military/police dictatorships throughout the Third World. It also requires an apologetic ideology which portrays all this as being in the highest interests of democracy and human rights.

& the Reconstruction of Imperial Ideology
The Political Economy of Human Rights:
Vol II

by Noam Chomsky & Edward S Herman

After the Cataclysm is the story of how the US press prints the news it sees fit to print. It is a valuable, carefully documented assessment of Western reporting on post-1975 Indochina. Especially comprehensive in its treatment of Cambodia, it provides a trenchant and healthy critique of news media coverage that has usually been as tendentious as that dealing with the early years of US military intervention in Indochina.

<span style='font-size: 14px;'>East Timor & the Western Democracies</span>East Timor & the Western Democracies
by Noam Chomsky

An address given to the International Conference on East Timor, in Lisbon, May 1979. Chomsky sets out the woeful response to these events from the West. This is significant in itself, both then, and in relation to the continuing atrocities committed on the East Tomorise in recent times. The Indonesian aggression could not have taken place and could not have continued without the crucial support of the Western industrial democracies, and their 'free press'.

<span style='font-size: 14px;'>The Race to Destruction</span>The Race to Destruction
Its Rational Basis
by Noam Chomsky

Surveying the historical record, we can find examples of societies so organised that they drifted towards catastrophe with a certain inevitability, systematically avoiding steps that could have changed this course. US society is an example, except that in this case the catastrophe that les ahead involves national and perhaps global suicide. It is hardly unrealistic to surmise that we may be entering the terminal phase of history. The author focuses on the United States, with special reference to its involvement in the countries of Central America and the Middle East.

European Nuclear Disarmament Papers
Special Pamphlet


Noam Chomsky, Howard Brenton et. al.

A network of powerful interests has always contrived to slow British reactions to atrocities which carry any hint of American approval. A different lobby has commonly sought to give the state of Israel the benefit of every possible, (and many are far from plausible) doubt.

The 1982 offensive against West Beirut gave tragic confirmation of many of these old doubts. The END Convention resolved to establish links with the Israeli peace movement, and send a mission to the front. This pamphlet offers the full magisterial text from Noam Chomsky, amongst others, written at the beginning of hostilities, and offering us the light of sweet reason during a particularly dark moment.

<span style='font-size: 14px;'>Two Essays on Cambodia   </span>Two Essays on Cambodia
by Noam Chomsky

"During the 1960s, Prince Sihanouk tried, with much success, to save Cambodia from the spreading Indochina war. Nevertheless, the war spilt over into Eastern Cambodia. Those whose information is restricted to American government propaganda may have visions of an invasion of Cambodia by great North Vietnamese armies. The truth is rather different."
