The Prosperous Few and the Restless Many (Real Story Series) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A short but amazingly wide-ranging state-of-the-world report by the man the New York Times calls "arguably the most important intellectual alive". From Bosnia to NAFTA (the proposed North American Free Trade Agreement), these three recent interviews cover an enormous amount of ground.

Synopsis:

We now have an international economy and we're moving towards the international state - "creating a new imperial age with de facto world government". This work is a state-of-the-world report from the man the "New York Times" called "arguably the most important intellectual alive".

Synopsis:

These wide-ranging interviews, from 1992 and 1993, cover everything from Bosnia and Somalia to biotechnology and nonviolence, with particular attention to the "Third Worldization" of the United States.

About the Author

Noam Chomsky was born in Philadelphia in 1928. Since 1955, he's taught at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he became a full professor at the age of 32. A major figure in twentieth-century linguistics, chomsky has also written many books on comtemporary issues. His political talks ahve been heard, typically by standing-room only audiences, all over the country and the globe, and he's received countless honors and awards.

In a saner world, his tireless efforts to promote justice would have long since won him the Nobel peace prize, but the commitee keeps giving it to people like Henry Kissinger.
