Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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, Power Systems shows once again that no interlocutor engages with Chomsky more effectively than David Barsamian. These interviews will inspire a new generation of listeners, 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.

Review:

"In this series of interviews with activist-journalist David Barsamian, noted political theorist and linguist Noam Chomsky details the essence of power in the modern political world and describes the tendency of major social institutions to generate propaganda that perpetuates elitist control. These recordings took place not in a studio, but rather in Chomsky's office. In fact, at several points during the sessions, we hear the muted electronic buzzing of what must be a telephone. However, nonceremonious production values fit nicely with Chomsky's no-nonsense approach. Barsamian serves as an effective interviewer, guiding the flow of conversation around a series of recurring themes while making room for hard-hitting, off-the-cuff insights from Chomsky. A Metropolitan paperback." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
