About this book

Deterring Democracy is a book published in 1991 by Noam Chomsky, which explores the differences between the humanitarian rhetoric and imperialistic reality of United States foreign policy and how it affects various countries around the world.

In the book, Chomsky explores the idea that the US is the only remaining world superpower that works to maintain its dominance, even ruthlessly employing violence such as outright invasions and overthrowing governments pursuing independent economic policies...


Our interpretation:

Chomsky has written a large host of important books, many of which require tenacity and patience to absorb. Deterring Democracy has played a large part in developing the lyrics for the .calibre album (Kill The Logo - 2002). Other Chomsky favourites are: Rogue States (2000), Manufacturing Consent (1988) and Necessary Illusions (1989).
