Power Systems
Conversations on Global Democratic Uprisings and the New Challenges to U.S. Empire
A compelling new set of interviews on our changing and turbulent times with Noam Chomsky, one of the world's foremost thinkers.

In these conversations, Noam Chomsky explores the breakdown of mainstream political institutions in the United States. Chomsky presents his ideas vividly and accessibly, with uncompromising principle and clarifying insight. The latest volume from a long-established, trusted partnership, Power Systems shows once again that no interlocutor engages with Chomsky more effectively than David Barsamian.
  • “Chomsky is a global phenomenon... perhaps the most widely read voice on foreign policy on the planet.” Samantha Power, The New York Times Book Review

    “Sitting down and talking to Noam Chomsky about current affairs has to be one of the most illuminating experiences going. But what if you can't always think of the best questions? Not to worry: David Barsamian's interviews with Chomsky consistently ask penetrating and provocative questions. If you're familiar with Chomsky, he will still manage to surprise you.” Political Affairs
