This is followed by six appendices: three appendices contain lists of Chomsky’s books in the field of linguistics, then in the field of politics and media, and a list of books about Chomsky. This part of the book also includes three annotated bibliographies of Chomsky’s linguistic works, then his works dealing with politics and media, and finally the works of others about Chomsky.
