by Noam Chomsky
Black & Red
In Objectivity and Liberal Scholarship, written while the Vietnam War was raging, Chomsky condemns liberal ideology for supporting U.S. imperial adventures in Southeast Asia during the 1960s.
Chomsky also shows that the same ideology distorts the work of scholars who analyze earlier conflicts. His critique of historians of the Spanish Revolution and Civil War leads to a stirring account of that libertarian struggle in the late 1930s.
