The connection is important and sound, but it is not what I felt the book was going to be or ought to be. It is all classic Chomsky, reiterating what he usually says about specific US Foreign Policy examples and how they differ from the stated doctrine.

Privatized and indoctrinating systematic propaganda controls education by having children reproduce, legitimatize, and maintain the current dominant social order. Children are not valued with having an innate self-worth in which education assists in guiding a pedagogy based on encouraging investigation, questioning, and discovery of truth. It seems those indoctrinated into the current dominating social order of intellectual and economic worth, including myself an aristocrat who fears and distrusts people who draws all powers from them into the hands of the higher classes , enjoy the benefits of such a hierarchal system which has led to an unquestioning status quo state-of-being.

A moral imperative currently exists in American education and the answer to address it lies with those who desire to question it. January 1, Michael Brickey I tried to read this book once before, but had little success. He assumes that the reader has a basic knowledge of the US role in Latin American affairs of the past thirty years.

I do not have that foundation knowledge miseducation perhaps? However, it corresponds to the "propaganda model" he thoroughly, yet no less confusingly, posits in Manufacturing Consent; which, I also had to lay down a few years I tried to read this book once before, but had little success. However, it corresponds to the "propaganda model" he thoroughly, yet no less confusingly, posits in Manufacturing Consent; which, I also had to lay down a few years back for the same reasons mentioned above.

The great thing about Chomsky is that he opens your eyes to blatant falsification and misinformation in such a way that you become more aware and therefore more critical of media in general. You can read his essays and books, or listen to him speak over and over again, and each time you learn something new. January 1, P. Fuck Noam Chomsky. I read this when I was twelve years old. If a twelve year old who reads at a 12th grade level cannot understand your writing, you are writing in terms unnecessary.

If not for the billowing footnotes and rank nonsense, perhaps I might have enjoyed his very bullshit critique of education in the Western World. I re-read it when I was sixteen, giving the armchair sissy another chance.

If you want anarchy, read CrimethInc. Fu Fuck Noam Chomsky. January 1, Saad Khawari In this book Chomsky portrays the notion that students are indoctrinated about the concept of democracy and instilled with patriotism. He also mentions that students should be discovering for themselves the nature of democracy and be practicing naturally because of it. The book talks about problems of the education system and the foreign policies that many students are unaware of.

My favorite part of the book is when Chomsky gives an example of what education is. He says " Education is not be vi In this book Chomsky portrays the notion that students are indoctrinated about the concept of democracy and instilled with patriotism. He says " Education is not be viewed as something like filling a vessel with water, rather, assisting a flower to grow in its own way. Initially I liked the book, but later on I got confused because the author believes that reader knows of many foreign policies, events, etc.

I would recommend this book to those with significant knowledge of history and passion. January 1, Abe There are 55 pages in this page book that can be reasonably be described as being about education. The remaining part talks about American militarism and media distortions, standard Chomsky fare.

January 1, Timali In the beginning is a short analysis of formal education. Afterwards, the book is about mis-education through media and political propaganda, focusing greatly on the contra war in s. Also offers a critical perspective on democracy and US interventions to "restore democracy". While the title of the book is rather misleading, the book itself is educational and worth reading. January 1, Roger B tough read as Chomsky gives a blow by blow of the intrigue in Central America during the 80s.

January 1, Zac The book is several separate parts put together under a common theme. Several chapters are available in other books. January 1, Neil Morrison This could be a good start to reading Chomsky as several of the chapters are available in other books but if you have them already then this book is pretty much un-needed so I dropped a star for that. However if your new to Chomsky this book will be a real eye-opener and perhaps awaken you to what is going on around yourself and dis-information.

It can be found indepe This could be a good start to reading Chomsky as several of the chapters are available in other books but if you have them already then this book is pretty much un-needed so I dropped a star for that. It can be found independent of the book though as it is basically his speech to Loyola University in If your new to Chomsky by all means buy the book, if you own Chomsky books already then you probably already have the essays.

January 1, Nativeabuse Love the guy, and agree with everything he says, but this is far from his best work. These Chomsky interview books are usually just him saying the same stuff over and over again every single book. This is no exception. I thought it might be an exception because of the fact that it is labeled as a book on education, but it barely touches upon these topics before getting back into the timeworn topics he always discusses, Nicaragua, Central America, South America, Vietnam, Israel, US atrocities, ec Love the guy, and agree with everything he says, but this is far from his best work.

The attempt to link this stuff to education was half-assed at best. Not one of his better books. January 1, Ben Chomsky is a man everyone should read. In fact, it took me more than a year to finish this book. I read 80 pages, put it down for a year, then picked it up and finished it in a week. This book is one of those examples. Not only that, but this book also shows that some Chomsky fans will even go beyond reason to edit and introduce a Chomsky book based on a some terrible Chomsky interviews.

The beginning is fine, though based on ideas that anyone who has read Manufacturing Consent or Understanding Power will quickly recognize. January 1, Erik Graff This is a lazy and misleading piece of compilation by its editor.

Half of it is a chapter of a previously published book and the rest consists of a few lectures, interviews and discussions which have only a little to do with what is normally thought of as education. The underlying theme is rather what Chomsky has termed "the manufacture of consent"--in other words, propaganda and how governments, particularly his own, and corporations misinform and distort facts to serve their interests and thos This is a lazy and misleading piece of compilation by its editor.

El recull de dialegs o articles convida a reflexionar. January 1, Ben First 2 chapters are fantastic, the rest of the book strays away from the original topic, and while it is interesting reading about politics, it is not what I was looking for.

The first chapter is an interview with Donaldo Macedo, short but interesting. The second chapter goes into more depth but after that it is no more about teaching. January 1, Lushr As is so often the case with Chomsky books only the introduction by Macedo and the interview between himself and Chomsky in chapter 1 are actually directly associated with the education system and its failings. The rest of the essays are educational but stray to other topics such as lack of democracy, politics war Eye-opening and important, but very dry and not really what I was looking for.

January 1, Dena This was pretty standard Chomsky. I was a bit bummed because it focused more on propaganda and US support for anti-democratic regimes in the Third World than education.

January 1, Michal Wigal Starts off as a great critique of the indoctrination aspects of schooling in the U. January 1, Dalton Only gave it 4 because a lot of what he was saying was way over my head, but the stuff I did grasp was amazingly enlightening.

Chomsky is a modern genius January 1, Xiaojie Johan Not the best Chomsky book, but he goes deeper into his observations of miseducation, of which I used to agree with. January 1, Mark Just a collection of very good essays, but with only tenuous links to education. Very interesting "dialogue" as the opening chapter though.

Books by Noam Chomsky. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. He has become the foremost gadfly of our national conscience. At a time when teachers, students, and public life in general are under assault by the juggernaut of commodification and capital accumulation, it is crucial that educators, parents, youth, and others be offered a language in which politics, power, justice, and social change become central to any notion of educational reform.
