As a nineteen-year-old undergraduate in 1947, Noam Chomsky was deeply affected by articles about the responsibility of intellectuals written by Dwight Macdonald. Twenty years later, as the Vietnam War was escalating, Chomsky turned to the question himself, noting that 'intellectuals are in a position to expose the lies of governments' and to analyze their 'often hidden intentions.'

Originally published in the New York Review of Books, Chomsky's essay eviscerated the 'hypocritical moralism of the past' and exposed the shameful policies in Vietnam and the role of intellectuals in justifying it. Also included in this volume is the brilliant 'The Responsibility of Intellectuals Redux', written on the tenth anniversary of 9/11, which makes the case for using privilege to challenge the state. As relevant now as it was in 1967, The Responsibility of Intellectuals reminds us that 'privilege yields opportunity and opportunity confers responsibilities.' All of us have choices, even in desperate times.
