One of his best-known books is Manufacturing Consent, written with Noam Chomsky. More recently, in his and David Peterson's 2010 book, "The Politics of Genocide," Herman argues that some genocides such as Kosovo and Rwanda in 1994 have been exaggerated or misconstrued in the West to advance a specific economic agenda, eventually leading to a minority controlled government of pro-Western and pro-business Tuti, while other genocides, such as East Timor, have been largely ignored for the same reason.
