 Noam Chomsky is universally accepted as one of the pre-eminent public intellectuals of the modern era. In Understanding Power, Peter Mitchell and John Schoeffel have assembled the best of Chomsky’s recent talks on the past, present, and future of the politics of power. Chomsky radically reinterprets the events of the past three decades, covering topics from foreign policy during Vietnam to the decline of welfare under the Clinton administration. And as he elucidates the connection between America’s imperialistic foreign policy and the decline of domestic social services, Chomsky also discerns the necessary steps to take toward 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 offers a sweeping critique of the world around us and is definitive Chomsky.
