Caroline Kelemen | 252 comments Who Rules the World? by Noam Chomsky

Who Rules the World? by Noam Chomsky

Finished: 6/17/16

It works for C4 - male narrator
It probably won't work for much else, as the only shelf with more than 10 adds is Politics. The audiobook is not on Goodreads, but the cover is the same.
