In his lively and engaging style, he presents advances in current grammatical theorycalled 'Minimalist Program', sketches some of the key issues that have characterized generative grammar in recent years, and charts out the agenda for future research in language theory. Linguists interested in the internal history of generative linguistics will find this book insightful as alsostudents and general readers who wish to gain an introductory knowledge of the discipline, its significance, and Chomsky's contribution.
