When Hugo Chavez spoke to the United Nations on Wednesday, calling George W. Bush “the devil,” he help up a copy of MIT linguistics professor Noam Chomsky’s “Hegemony or Survival: America’s Quest for Global Dominance” and recommended it to the General Assembly and the American people.
“The people of the United States should read this… instead of watching Superman movies,” Chavez later told reporters. Chavez also said one of his great regrets was not meeting Chomsky before he died. Chomsky is alive and well at 77.
Chomsky’s book has since shot to the top of Amazon’s Bestsellers list from number 20,664.
