Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Global Discontents by Noam Chomsky, read by Noam Chomsky and David Barsamian. 

Global Discontents is an essential guide to geopolitics and how to fight back, from the world's leading public intellectual.

What kind of world are we leaving to our grandchildren? How are the discontents kindled today likely to blaze and explode tomorrow?

From escalating climate change to the devastation in Syria, pandemic state surveillance to looming nuclear war, Noam Chomsky takes stock of the world today. Over the course of 10 conversations with longtime collaborator David Barsamian, spanning 2013-2016, Chomsky argues in favour of radical changes to a system that cannot possibly cope with what awaits tomorrow.

Interwoven with personal reflections spanning from childhood to his eighth decade of life, Global Discontents also marks out Chomsky's own intellectual journey, mapping his progress to revolutionary ideas and global prominence.

What happened in chapter 12????

lovely collection of talks with Noam Chomsky. Would've given it 5 starts, but Audible completely destroyed this great listen in the last chapter when all of the sudden Noam and his interviewer dissappear and we hear a completely new voice. ....very dispassionate and unpleasant to listen.Such shame.
