Conversations on the Post-9/11 World
This important volume of previously unpublished interviews conducted by award-winning radio journalist David Barsamian features Noam Chomsky discussing US policies in an increasingly unstable world. With his famous insight, lucidity, and redoubtable grasp of history, Chomsky offers his views on the invasion and occupation of Iraq and the doctrine of "preemptive" strikes against so-called rogue states, warning of the growing threat to international peace posed by the US drive for domination. In his inimitable style, Chomsky also dissects the propaganda system that fabricates a mythic past and airbrushes inconvenient facts out of history.
“If, for reasons of chance, or circumstance, (or sloth), you have to pick just one book on the subject of the American Empire, I'd say pick this one. It's the Full Monty. It's Chomsky at his best . . . necessary reading.” —Arundhati Roy
“How did we ever get to be an empire? The writings of Noam Chomsky--America's most useful citizen--are the best answer to that question.” —The Boston Globe
“Unique insight into Chomsky's decades of penetrating analyses, drawn together . . . by a brilliant radio interviewer, David Barsamian.” —Ben Bagdikian, winner of the Pulitzer Prize on Propaganda and the Public Mind: Conversations with Noam Chomsky
