Editorial Reviews

Review

“In this brief but hard-hitting paperback, linguist and radical intellectual Noam Chomsky and writer/artist Laray Polk share their conversations between 2010 and 2012 on the precarious state of things in the world.”
—Spirituality and Practice 

About the Author

Born in Philadelphia in 1928, NOAM CHOMSKY is known throughout the world for his political writings, activism, and for for his groundbreaking work in linguistics. A professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology since 1955, Chomsky gained recognition in academic circles for his theory of transformational grammar, which drew attention to the syntactic universality of all human languages. But it is as a critic of unending war, corporate control and neoliberalism that Chomsky has become one of the country’s most well known public intellectuals. The 1969 publication of American Power and the New Mandarins marked the beginning of Chomsky’s rigorous public criticism of American hegemony and its lieges. Since then, with his tireless scholarship and an unflagging sense of moral responsibility, he has become one of the most influential writers in the world. Chomsky is the author of Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media (with Edward S. Herman), Profit Over People: Neoliberalism and Global Order, and over one hundred other books. To this day Noam Chomsky remains an active and uncompromising voice of dissent.

Chomsky's breadth of knowledge is astounding. In these interviews, he narrates fact after fact and relates them all meaningfully in a coherent framework. We need to think about where we are going, and Chomsky is the sounding bell of humanity, who reminds us of our follies, and stresses on the need for collective action to avert species-ending disasters.

Format: Paperback
There are more than two converging catastrophes, unfortunately although climate change and nuclear war loom large. There is also peak oil which threatens the continuation of industrial civilization in myriad ways, ocean acidificaiton, overpopulation, resource exploitation (everything from fish to rare minerals), habitat destruction leading the way for mass extinctions and pollution. Pollution is making people sick, causing dead zones in lakes, rivers, wetlands and estuaries, and - to worst perhaps, the almost universally ignored death of trees around the planet from tropospheric ozone.

Chomsky loved the commie Soviet Union.That is why he will not blame the Soviets for why Saddam (their friend) got away with the atrocities Chomsky wrote of around page 23-24. (President Ronald Reagan knew that if he got Saddam angry the Iraqi would simply have defected to the Soviet sphere of influence and then the world would be all the worse for it with Iraq's oil reserves and all!)
