A compelling new set of interviews on our changing and turbulent times with Noam Chomsky, one of the world's foremost thinkers In this new collection of conversations, conducted from 2010 to 2012, Noam Chomsky explores the most immediate and urgent concerns: the future of democracy in the Arab world, the implications of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the European financial crisis, the breakdown of American mainstream political institutions, and the rise of the Occupy movement. As always, Chomsky presents his ideas vividly and accessibly, with uncompromising principle and clarifying insight. The latest volume from a long-established, trusted partnership, this collection shows once again that no interlocutor engages with Chomsky more effectively than David Barsamian. These interviews will inspire a new generation of listeners, as well as longtime Chomsky fans eager for his latest thinking on the many crises we now confront, both at home and abroad. They confirm that Chomsky is an unparalleled resource for anyone seeking to understand our world today.

    " Great/disturbing insights as always, but if you've read Chomsky's earlier works you'll find quite a bit here that he's already stated many times previous. Still, there are some new tidbits of new info sprinkled here and there throughout the text. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arief Wicaksono | 1/5/2014

    " Chomsky presents a very rich perspective in dismantling global political-economy dynamics by guiding us on how to read strategically any published materials.. "

    " Esp. noted the comment about ' reading ' and how it's vanishing as part of the culture in general "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ecoute Sauvage | 10/22/2013

    " A great book - that said with only minor reservations concerning technical specs on the alleged damage caused by CO2 (a harmless gas) or the irrational fear of radiation following the Fukushima reactor accident. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott Duke | 7/27/2013

    " Chomsky is a true genius. Once again he easily cuts to the real heart of an issue and leaves you with wonderful solutions to serious problems. A master. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barth Siemens | 5/19/2013

    " Here is more clear, traditional, revolutionary thinking. It's amazing that Noam Chomsky manages to meet the objectives for all three. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina Hunter | 5/8/2013

    " Wonderful book. Very provocative interview series with Chomsky. I like how the book is broken into question and answer, very readable. I also like the flow, it moves from one topic to the next very well. This is thought provoking and informative. It was a relatively quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Haris | 2/22/2013

    " Chomsky is great usual. The recording quality is a bit bad though as this is a recording of interviews. They probably did it over the phone, or Skype so that's one thing to keep in mind when listening to the audiobook. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fred Molin | 2/19/2013
