Because We Say So is a collection of Noam Chomsky's essays and speeches from the period roughly from 2011 to 2014. Individually, they're interesting, considered criticisms of America's foreign policy in the Middle East. The problem is that collectively, they're very repetitious - all discussing the same themes of how USA and Israel are the regional troublemakers, and not Iran as those two like to suggest. I would've preferred more variety in the essays, as by about two-thirds through, I put this down as I felt this collection had little left to say. But, as individually the essays are informative, unfair to give less that 4 stars.
