In A Short Course in Intellectual Self-Defense, Canadian historian and educator Normand Baillargeon provides readers with the tools to see through the spin and jargon of everyday politics and news reporting in order to decide for themselves what is at stake and how to ask the necessary questions to protect themselves from manipulation. Baillargeon teaches the history of pedagogy and the philosophy of education at the University of Quebec in Montreal. His book title picks up on an apt quote from Noam Chomsky: "My personal feeling is that citizens of the democratic societies should undertake a course of intellectual self-defense to protect themselves from manipulation and control, and to lay the basis for more meaningful democracy."
