Synopses & Reviews
Cultural Writing. In RADICAL PRIORITIES, C.P. Otero sets out to "provide relatively easy access to Chomsky's libertarian philosophy and political analysis." Taken from a wide variety of sources, many never published-some never in a book at all-and spanning four decades, the reader is furnished with a truly comprehensive window into Chomsky's anarchist convictions (convictions which, while ever-present in his analysis, are left largely misunderstood or worse, ignored). In seeking to combat the great challenges facing humanity, Chomsky's analysis and the traditions on which his work draws should not be left in obscurity. Noam Chomsky is a renowned scholar, founder of the modern science of linguistics, political and social analyst, media critic, tireless lecturer and author of more than 90 books.
How is it that one man can be so maligned by the Right and yet remain so misunderstood by the Left? This new and expanded edition of Radical Pri-orities puts the spotlight on Chomsky’s libertarian social and political philosophy in an engaging, easy-to-navigate manner. Keenly edited by Carlos-Peregrin Otero, this comprehensive collection of essays and in-terviews remains the ultimate guide to the politics of the author of 9–11, America’s bible for post-September 11th stress disorder. Discover for yourself the mind and motivations of the man the New York Times has labeled "the foremost gadfly of our national conscience."
Noam Chomsky, author, professor, dissident, remains an essential voice for our times.
Updated and expanded edition.
An inspiring journey through the social and political philosophy of Noam Chomsky.
