We normally think that the press are cantankerous, obstinate, and ubiquitous in its search for truth. In Manufacturing Consent Edward Herman and Noam Chomsky show how an underlying elite consensus largely structures all facets of the news. Far from challenging established power, the media work hard to discover and mirror its assumptions. The authors skilfully dissect the way in which the marketplace and the economics of publishing significantly shape the news. They reveal how issues are framed and topics chosen, and contrast the double standards underlying accounts of free elections, a free press, and governmental repression. The authors conclude that the modern mass media can best be understood in terms of a 'propaganda model'. News and entertainment companies dedicate themselves to profit within the established system. Their interests require that they support the governing assumptions of state and private power. The propaganda model provokes outrage from journalists, editors and broadcasters, but twenty years after first publication, Manufacturing Consent remains the most important critique of the mass media.

The second volume of The Political Economy of Human Rights remains one of the most controversial works produced by Chomsky to date. In a much discussed chapter on Cambodia, Chomsky and Herman questioned official Western narratives on the Khmer Rouge and suggested that the evidence available did not match up to the assertions being made at that time. These claims would resurface in a recent controversy with the Continental philosopher Slavoj Zizek and readers will now be able to judge for themselves the veracity of Zizek's claims. The work also contains important analysis of Western interventions across Indochina, including Vietnam and Laos, and provides a searing critique of American imperial aspirations in the region.For too long now, many important books by Noam Chomsky have been left to languish. Introducing Pluto's 'Chomsky Perspectives' series: a collectible, beautiful new list, with cover design by David Pearson. Including both enduring favourites and neglected essentials, these books will appeal to the serious Chomsky reader.

Half a dozen thoughtful essays, replete with specific examples, make the case, but the best part of the book-constituting 75 pages-is Herman's 'Doublespeak Dictionary for the 1990s.' The ProgressiveThis spirited book offers examples of duplicitous terminology, trenchant essays, satirical cartoons, and a cross-referenced doublespeak dictionary for the 1990s.
