OFF-TOPIC: Non linguistics books by Chomsky

I just bought a book in the university bookshop today entitled "Hegemony
or Survival: America's Quest for Global Domination" by Noam Chomsky. At
first I thought it was unlikely to be by the Chomsky known to everyone
who's read a linguistics book, but talking about the author the book
says "He is a professor in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy
at MIT, and is widely credited with having revolutionised modern
linguistics" I wasn't aware Chomsky had written any books about politics
but the book itself is very interesting, and very convincing... I was
not exactly in favour of recent american foreign policy anyway, but the
book gives a very coherent and well thought out argument against it
which I find myself agreeing with completely. Has anyone else read it?
