"American Power & the New Mandarins, as one critic has put it 'is the first significant work of social & political comment to come out of the Vietnamese catastrophe' But this new collection of historical & political essays by Professor Chomsky contains much more than a devastatingly powerful attack on the American involvement in Vietname. Its central theme is the dual role of American liberal intellectuals who in addition to the responsibility they owe to society of 'speaking the truth & exposing lies', have an increasingly come to occupy a position of influence & power."
