's review

really liked it

This is a great read-- both Foucault and Chomsky express their ideas clearly and, maybe more importantly, they are excellent at pointing out the exact differences between their theories. Chomsky sums it up around page 132. If you're interested in linguistics and politics, innate vs. experience-learned language, this is a good read. Also, Foucault has an interesting piece on Police and their role in society.

Aaron Foucault was inspired by and invested in retaliatory, radical-left, anti-civil service activism. I am interested in ideas about the roles of societal law enforcement, but his piece on it would seem ironic.
