Description: "The great work of subjugation and conquest" has changed little over the years. This is a powerful treatise on the not-so-new New World Order. Analyzing Haiti, Latin America, Cuba, Indonesia, and even pockets of the Third World developing in the United States, Noam Chomsky draws parallels between the genocide of colonial times and the murder and exploitation associated with modern-day imperialism.
Available in Spanish as 'Ano 501'.
Review(s): "Chomsky's fierce talent proves once more that human beings are not condemned to become commodities." - Eduardo Galeano
"Year 501 is another awesome achievement by Noam Chomsky. It is a devastating array of information about the U.S. role in the world, placed in the long historical perspective of the 500 years that followed the voyages of Columbus. The result is a wonderful single-volume education in history and world politics." - Howard Zinn
