Western societies are divided more sharply than ever before into the haves and have-nots, even as neo-liberal doctrines are being reshaped into effective instruments of oppression and domination.
Through a series of fascinating discussions with fellow-activist David Barsamian, Noam Chomsky-arguably one of the greatest radical thinkers of this century-cuts through dominant ideologies, official lies and manufactured consent to shed light on themes as diverse as US foreign policy, Israel, women’s rights, the occupation of East Timor by Indonesia and the complicity of western nations in that ongoing tragedy, labour disputes, and in general, the perfidies of twentieth century capitalism. In a more personal vein, he also touches on his intellectual upbringing, teaching and research.
This well-known series of discussions is illuminating, thought provoking and profound and provides a lucid map to emerging global capitalism.
