Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

In this powerful collection of interviews, Noam Chomsky exposes the problems of our world today, as we stand in this period of monumental change, preparing for a more hopeful tomorrow.

For the left, elections are a brief interlude in a life of real politics, a moment to ask whether it's worth taking time off to vote.... Then back to work. The work will be to move forward to construct the better world that is within reach.

He sheds light into the phenomenon of right-wing populism and exposes the catastrophic nature and impact of authoritarian policies on people, the environment and the planet as a whole. He captures the dynamics of the brutal class warfare launched by the masters of capital to maintain and even enhance the features of a dog-eat-dog society. And he celebrates the recent unprecedented mobilisations of millions of people internationally against neoliberal capitalism, racism and police violence.

We stand at a precipice and we must fight to pull the world back from it.

shocking information

The drawback is that you keep being presented with the same information. Maybe from different interviews, I don't know, but it gets repetitive.

In the spirit of reconciliation, Audible Australia acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
