"Judged in terms of power, range, novelty and influence of his thought, Noam Chomsky is arguably the most important intellectual alive today. The most important intellectual alive."-- The New York Times Book Review

"Noam Chomsky is one of the most significant challengers of unjust power and delusions; he goes against every assumption about American altruism and humanitarianism."
-- Edward Said

"With relentless logic, Chomsky bids us to listen closely to what our leaders tell us-- and to discern what they are leaving out... The questions Chomsky raises will eventually have to be answered. Agree with him or not, we lose out by not listening."-- Business Week

"[Chomsky has] a proud defensive independence, a good plain writer's hatred of expert mystification, a doctrine of resistance which runs against the melioristic
and participatory current of most contemporary intellectual life.... Such men are dangerous; the lack of them is disasterous. "

-- New Statesman

"[Chomsky] continues to challenge our assumptions long after other critics have
gone to bed. He has become the foremost gadfly of our national conscience."

-- Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, New York Times
Book Review

"One of the West's most influential intellectuals in the cause of peace."
The Independent

"For nearly thirty years now, Noam Chomsky has parsed the main proposition of American power-- what they do is aggression, what we do upholds freedom-- with
encyclopedic attention to detail and an unflagging sense of outrage."

-- Utne Reader

"Chomsky's fierce talent proves once more that human beings are not condemned to become commodities."
-- Eduardo Galeano

"Chomsky strips away layers of propaganda not recognized as propaganda, brilliantly sifting through political discourse."
-- John Pilger

"Better than anyone else now writing, Chomsky combines indignation with insight, erudition with moral passion. That is a difficult achievement, and an encouraging one."
-- In These Times

"...outlandish as it may seem to most Americans today, it is possible that, if the United States goes the way of nineteenth-century Britain, Chomsky's interpretation will be the standard among historians a hundred years from now."-- The New Yorker on 9-11

"Noam a major scholarly resource. Not to have read [him] is to court genuine ignorance."-- The Nation

Without question, the most devious, the most dishonest and -- in this hour of his nation's grave crisis - the most treacherous intellect in America belongs to MIT professor Noam Chomsky.
-- David Horowitz

Directions, parking and other info -

"There are no magic answers, no miraculous methods to overcome the problems we face, just the familiar ones: honest search for understanding, education, organization, action that raises the cost of state violence for its perpetrators or that lays the basis for institutional change and the kind of commitment that will persist despite the temptations of disillusionment, despite many failures and only limited successes, inspired by the hope of a brighter future."
-- Noam Chomsky
