Publisher Description

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.
The latest volume from a long-established, trusted partnership, Power Systems shows once again that no interlocutor engages with Chomsky more effectively than David Barsamian. These interviews will inspire a new generation of listeners, as well as longtime Chomsky fans eager for his latest thinking on the many crises we now confront, both at home and abroad. They confirm that Chomsky is an unparalleled resource for anyone seeking to understand our world today.

Paper Thin

I have heard so much fanfare for Noam Chomsky, and I can't describe how disappointed I am in having chosen 'Power Systems' as my first introduction to one of Chomsky's books. I have heard several compelling and insightful interviews with Chomsky in the past, and I was expecting this set of interviews to deliver an extended analysis. Instead, I got several hours of what I've heard in a ten minute interview, with entire conversations often repeated verbatim from chapter to chapter. I would expect more from such a revered academic.
