Robert F. Barsky (1997) Noam Chomsky: A life of dissent. MIT Press Cambridge.

	This biography describes the intellectual and political milieus that
helped shape Noam Chomsky, a pivotal figure in contemporary linguistics,
politics, cognitive psychology, and philosophy. It also presents an
engaging polical history of the last several decades. The book highlights
Chomsky's views on the uses and misuses of the university as an institution,
his assessment of useful political engagement and his dobuts about
postmodernism. Because Chomsky is given ample space to articulate his views on
many of the major issues relating to his work, both linguistic and political,
this book can also be seen as the autobiography that Chomsky says he will
never write.
