Title: The Cambridge Companion to Chomsky
Edited By: James McGilvray
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521780131
Description:

Noam Chomsky is one of the most influential thinkers of modern times. The
most cited writer in the humanities, his work has revolutionised the field
of linguistics, and has dominated many other disciplines including politics
and the philosophy of mind and human nature. He has also contributed
significantly to our understanding of the abuse of power, and of the
controlling effects of the mass media. This companion brings together a
team of leading linguists, philosophers, cognitive scientists and political
theorists to consolidate the disparate strands of Chomsky's thought into
one accessible volume. Through a range of chapters focusing on the various
aspects of his work, they introduce in a clear and non-technical way the
central themes of his extraordinary effect on our understanding of
language, mind, and the abuse of political power. Comprehensive and
informative, this is an essential guide to one of the leading intellectual
figures of our time.
