Описание:

"Пропаганда для демократии - все равно что дубинка для тоталитарного государства" - утверждает своей книгой знаменитый профессор Ноам Хомский, исследуя достижения пропаганды со времен президента Уильсона до времен президента Буша-младшего.

"Propaganda," says Noam Chomsky, "is to a democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state"--in other words, the means by which leaders keep the masses in line. In this slim pamphlet, he looks at American propaganda efforts, from the warmongering of Woodrow Wilson to the creation of popular support for the 1991 military intervention in Kuwait, and reveals how falsification of history, suppression of information, and the promotion of vapid, empty concepts have become standard operating procedure for the leaders of the United States--both Democrats and Republicans--in their efforts to prevent citizens from raising awkward questions about U.S. policy.

On this original recording, Chomsky delivers a provocative lecture exemplary of the media analysis that is his signature. Arguing that “propaganda is to democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state,” Chomsky sketches the triumphs of U.S. propaganda from the Wilson era through the first Bush administration.

Written in the wake of Gulf War I, this insightful lecture touches on the machinations of Bush Sr.’s war propaganda. As such, Media Control is a timely and haunting reminder of propaganda’s proven hazard: the repetition of our most nightmarish history.

Professor Noam Chomsky has been declared “arguably the most important intellectual alive” by The New York Times. He is the author of numerous groundbreaking bestsellers on linguistics, foreign policy and media.
