I watched number of interviews of him and he seemed genuine and outspoken, not afraid of talking about tough issues. What is general American's view of Noam Chomsky? Has any of you read his book, "Hegemony or Survival: America's Quest for Global Dominance?" If yes, what do you think of the book? Thanks in advance for any insights.
