In this urgent new book, Noam Chomsky examines the dangers and prospects of our early 21st century. Exploring challenges such as the growing gap between North and South, American exceptionalism (including under President Obama), the fiascos of Iraq and Afghanistan, the U.S.-Israeli assault on Gaza, and the recent recent financial bailouts, he also sees hope for the future. Chomsky surveys the democratic wave in Latin America and the growing global solidarity movements that suggest progress toward freedom and justice.

Hopes and Prospects is essential listening for anyone who is concerned about the primary challenges still facing the human race.

    " Up-to-date on what is happening around the world. Typically prime material on the most influential leftist intellectual on earth. One of the few intellectuals that writes for everyone. He gets more into economics here than usual, something I think is important (readable economics). "

    " What can I say about Noam Chomsky that I haven't in previous reviews? He is a research god. This book again focuses on the United States' "democracy building" across the world and the atrocities is has brought to populations and cultures different from ours. He makes it seem so easy to turn politician's arguments for aggression on its head and use the same arguments for other countries to behave the same way. Why should bullying the world be only a U.S. policy and procedure? Who is making the rules in this period of globalization? Oh yeah, we are. "

    " Excellent review of American Foreign Policy and global events. "

    " The prospects aren't good and the hopes are vanishingly small, but these well-documented lectures and essays bring Chomsky's critique of American foreign policy into 2010 and demonstrate how little the media/government image of the US at work in the world continues to have to do with the reality. I thought the sections on Latin America and on our disgraceful treatment of the Russians after 1989 especially good. "
