In this all new collection of conversations, Noam Chomsky explores the most immediate and urgent concerns: Iran's challenge to the United States, the deterioration of the Israel-Palestine conflict, the ongoing occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan, the rise of China, and the growing power of the left in Latin America, as well as the Democratic victory in the U.S. midterm elections and its ramifications for the future. As always, Chomsky presents his ideas clearly and accessibly, with uncompromising principle and clarifying insight.

The latest audiobook from a long-established, trusted partnership, What We Say Goes shows once again that no interlocutor engages with Noam Chomsky more effectively than David Barsamian. These interviews confirm that Chomsky is an unparalleled resource for anyone seeking to understand our world today.

    " Great facts inside include: In the Middle East, US and Israel have a long history of substantially helping to create islamic fundamentalist terrorism by destroying secular nationalism. Propaganda has to have an element of credibility in order that when attacked the the attacker is merely accused of denying what is true. You must protect to right to lie to support power.The slow steady erosion of repeated lies is "your duty of service to power". Look at the majority of declassified documents and you will see that most are classified to keep them not from being leaked to other countries, but to keep them from the American population. Ask yourself why? :) Unlike our "leaders", The American people clearly want a return to diplomacy. The reason we keep Guantanamo? It keeps Cuba from using it as Cuba's number one port to strangle Cuba for defiance of US policies since the Monroe doctrine. Isn't that sweet? Ah, the threats of good examples, a recurring motif. There's so much more brilliant stuff inside and they just reissued the paperback with a cool new cover so buy it and read it. you will not be disappointed... This came out in 2007 and is another terrific Noam Chomsky book to read... "

    " There is no question that Noam Chomsky is one of the worlds great thinkers...critics and followers alike have agreed on this fact. In what we say goes we the collective reader get a cliff notes version of many of Chomsky's very complex and researched thoughts on media/world power. This makes for a very easy and quick read, but does little to add to Mr Chomsky's library of original thoughts. Kind of like a remix album for social science. "

    " He's brilliant as always--I listened to this as an audiobook and he speaks in such a wonderfully rational tone. It's also good to hear how things have improved since the 1960's in terms of public discourse. I can never get enough Noam. "

    " I enjoy reading Noam Chomsky books. I learned alot about how the U.S. is directly involved in the middle east political process. "
