Propaganda and the Public Mind: Conversations with Noam Chomsky Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

All new, unpublished interviews with world-renowned dissident Noam Chomsky.

In his latest interview collection, Noam Chomsky offers insights into the institutions that shape the public mind in the service of power and profit. Whether discussing U.S. military escalation in Colombia, the attack on Social Security, the rise of HMOs, or growing inequality worldwide, Chomsky shows how ordinary citizens, if they work together, have the power to make meaningful change.

Review:

"In Propaganda and the Public Mind, we have unique insight into Noam Chomsky's decades of penetrating analyses...drawn together in one slender volume by a brilliant radio interviewer, David Barsamian. They make clear that the new electronic media and their corporate culture ignore national boundaries and in that sense exceed in powering individual nations of the world whose borders they so easily penetrate." Ben Bagdikian, author of The Media Monopoly

Review:

"To anyone who wonders if ideas, information, and activism can make a profound difference in the twenty-first century, I say: 'Read this book.' Propaganda and the Public Mind challenges us to think more independently and more deeply about the human consequences of power and privilege. It also minces no words about the grim results of illusion and inaction. These discussions between Noam Chomsky and David Barsamian will inspire readers to explore wider possibilities....What we do with it is up to us." Norman Solomon, author, The Habits of Highly Deceptive Media

Praise for Noam Chomsky

"An exploder of received truths."-New York Times

"Noam Chomsky is one of the most significant challengers of unjust power and delusions; he goes against every assumption about American altruism and huniatrianism."-Edward Said

"Reading Chomsky is like standing in a wind tunnel. With relentless logic, Chomsky bids us to listen closely to what our leaders tell us--and to discern what they are leaving out...The questions Chomsky raises will eventually have to be answered. Agree with him or not, we lose out by not listening."-Business Week

Praise for David Barsamian

"David Barsamian is the Studs Terkel of our generation."-Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States
