Noam Chomsky is the 2012 recipient of NACLA's Latin America Peace and Justice Award for his ongoing commitment to social justice in the Americas. The son of Eastern European immigrants, Noam Chomsky is a professor emeritus at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a long time friend and supporter of NACLA. His book Turning the Tide: U.S. Intervention in Central America and the struggle for Peace (South End Press, 1985) helped a generation of scholars, activists, and concerned citizens think about the regions different conflicts—in El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Guatemala—as interlocking parts of a single crisis that revealed how the United States had a direct and enduring effect on political and economic policies in the hemisphere.
