Understanding Power: The Indispensable Chomsky

by Noam Chomsky - £16.99  Vintage (2003)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780099466062 | ISBN 10: 0099466066

Noam Chomsky is universally accepted as one of the pre-eminent public intellectuals of the modern era. Over the past thirty years, broadly diverse audiences have gathered to attend his sell-out lectures. Understanding Power assembles 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 - published here for the first time - 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 towards social change. With an eye to political activism and the media's role in popular struggle, as well as US foreign and domestic policy, Understanding Power is the definitive Chomsky. (Five hundred pages of explanatory footnotes compiled by the editors are available on the book's website www.understandingpower.co.uk)
