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

As a personal account of Chomsky and his thoughts on recent events, this is interesting enough. But as a political work it is pretty uninteresting. ( )

I have read a number of the books in the ongoing series of interviews with Noam Chomsky by David Barsamian. This one, like the others, is an excellent way to get a perspective on current events that is decidedly not the perspective of dominant media. I highly suggest these interview books as a way to introduce people to Chomsky's work. They are conversational in tone, and less dense than some of his more formal writing. The film "Manufacturing Consent" is probably one of the best introductions, but these are great too. ( )

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 readers, 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.
