What to expect

An interview with Noam Chomsky is a bit like throwing batting practice to Babe Ruth. What you lob in, he will hammer out.

This conversational interview by Michael Albert, who has been close to Chomsky for roughly half a century and talked with him many hundreds of times, spans a wide range of topics including journalism, science, religion, the racist foundations of American society, education as indoctrination, issues of class and resistance, colonialism, imperialism, and much more.

The thread through it all is that every topic—and the list above takes us just about halfway through this book—reveals how social systems work, what their impact on humanity is, and how they are treated by the elite, mainstream intellectuals, and leftists. It gets personal, theoretical, and observational. The lessons are relevant to all times, so far, and pretty much all places, and Chomsky’s logical scalpel, with moral guidance, is relentless.

Critics Review

  • “Chomsky is a global phenomenon…He may be the most widely read American voice on foreign policy on the planet.”

    New York Times Book Review, praise for the author
  • “Noam Chomsky is the world’s most humane, philosophically sophisticated, and knowledgeable public intellectual.”

    Richard Falk, professor emeritus of international law, Princeton University, praise for the author
  • “With relentless logic, Chomsky bids us to listen closely to what our leaders tell us—and to discern what they are leaving out…Agree with him or not, we lose out by not listening.”

    Businessweek, praise for the author
