Abstract:

A collection of the best of Chomsky's recent talks on the politics of power. Characterised by Chomsky's accessible and informative style, this is the ideal book for those new to his work as well as those who have been listening for years.

Here is a major collection from 'arguably the most important intellectual alive' (the New York Times). Noam Chomsky is universally accepted as one of the pre-eminent public intellectuals of the modern era. Over the past thirty years, broadly diverse audiences have gathered to attend his sold-out lectures.
