A classic in mid-80's generative syntax. The main focus of the book is classical binding theory (again in the context of generative syntax), but there's also a nice introduction where Chomsky, in a rare moment, examines connections between his political work and his theoretical linguistics.
Not for the feint of heart, and probably only really comprehensible once you've taken an undergraduate syntax course or read a syntax textbook.
If you're into Philosophy and understand how to read it, as well as interested in Language as a theory and science, you will LOVE this book. seriously just start with the opening chapter.
