Noam Chomsky is a world-renowned political dissident, anarchist, linguist, author and institute professor emeritus at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he’s taught for more than half a century.
Chomsky has written more than 100 books, his latest being “Because We Say So“. Chomsky has been a highly influential academic figure throughout his career, and was cited within the Arts and Humanities Citation Index (A&HCI) more often than any other living scholar from 1980 to 1992. His work has influenced a wide range of domains, including artificial intelligence, cognitive science, computer science, logic, mathematics, music theory and analysis, psychology and immunology.
Chomsky also developed the propaganda model of media criticism with Edward S. Herman which they presented in their book “Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media“. Chomsky remains a leading critic of U.S. foreign policy, neoliberal capitalism, and mainstream news media.
Daniel Ellsberg was a consultant with the Pentagon and the White House, where he drafted plans for nuclear war. In his book titled The Doomsday Machine: Confessions of a Nuclear War Planner, Ellsberg reveals for the first time copies of top-secret documents from his nuclear studies—an entire second set of papers in addition to the Pentagon Papers, for which he is known to have leaked in 1971. Ellsberg is also the author of a 2003 memoir about the Pentagon Papers and Vietnam called Secrets. He’s the subject of the Oscar-nominated documentary The Most Dangerous Man in America. Ellsberg is a character in the Steven Spielberg film about the Pentagon Papers called The Post released in 2017.
