    A compelling new set of interviews on our changing and turbulent times with Noam Chomsky, one of the world's foremost thinkers...

    In this new collection of conversations, conducted from 2010 to 2012, Noam Chomsky explores the most immediate and urgent concerns: the future of democracy in the Arab world, the implications of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the European financial crisis, the breakdown of American mainstream political institutions, and the rise of the Occupy movement. As always, Chomsky presents his ideas vividly and accessibly, with uncompromising principle and clarifying insight.

    Christine says: "This is not a book, it's an interview"
    "Insightful interviews, not a book."

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This is a series of insightful interviews with Noam Chomsky, providing comment on the meaning and significance of contemporary social, political, and economic trends and events. I should have read the description more carefully before buying. I was expecting something that would more closely approximate a book, which this is not. I was also expect fresh perspectives and new analysis of contemporary concerns. This is a good reflection of Noam Chomsky's ideas. Chomsky speaks off the cuff to questions presented to him. Smart, articulate, well stated. Not particularly novel.


    Has Power Systems turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I'll pay more attention to the description in the future.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Noam Chomsky and David Barsamian ’s performances?

    Probably not.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Reflection on contemporary challenges.
