Publisher's Summary

In his new book, Noam Chomsky writes cogently about the threats to planetary survival that are of growing alarm today. 

The prospect of human extinction emerged after World War II, the dawn of a new era scientists now term the Anthropocene. Chomsky uniquely traces the duality of existential threats from nuclear weapons and from climate change - including how the concerns emerged and evolved and how the threats can interact with one another. 

The introduction and accompanying interviews place these dual threats in a framework of unprecedented corporate global power which has overtaken nation states’ ability to control the future and preserve the planet. Chomsky argues for the urgency of international climate and arms agreements, showing how global popular movements are mobilising to force governments to meet this unprecedented challenge to civilisation’s survival.

The Game Plan Moving Forward

A superb piece of writing. Whilst it engages in a deeply powerful and moving way with regard to the long term prospects for humanity, the strategies offered seem to offer critical hope for progressive activism in a increasingly concerning global order.
