Understanding PowerThe Indispensable Chomsky

Author(s): Peter R. Mitchell

Politics & Society

Noam Chomsky is universally accepted as one of the preeminent public intellectuals of the modern era. Over the past thirty years, broadly diverse audiences have gathered to attend his sold-out lectures. In 'Understanding power', Peter R. Mitchell and John Schoeffel have assembled the best of Chomsky's talks on the past, present, and future of the politics of power. In a series of enlightening and wide-ranging discussions, Chomsky radically reinterprets the events of the past three decades, covering topics from foreign policy during the Vietnam War to the decline of welfare under the Clinton administration. And as he elucidates the connection between America's imperialistic foreign policy and social inequalities at home, Chomsky also discerns the necessary steps to take toward social change. With an eye to political activism and the media's role in popular struggle, as well as U.S. foreign and domestic policy, 'Understanding power' is definitive Chomsky. Characterized by Chomsky's accessible and informative style, 'Understanding power' is the ideal book for those new to his work as well as for those who have been listening for years.
