2 things about this Q A book david barsamian is the questioner, he knows chomsky work well and is very good at pulling along the narrative some material is very time sensitive, and as some issues have come to pass reading this now is perhaps an exercise in history rather than futureisms, but also, this fight is not over yet and okay a 3 chomsky is a brilliant thinker and communicator and clearly sets out facts and outcomes, so a bit blast from the past feeling, but still valid rich and conservat [...]

What can I say It s a collection of interviews with one of the most influential dissidents of our times The topics covered in this book are broad Arab Uprisings, U.S foreign policy, climate change, the neoliberal attack on society at large and on public schools specifically, etc Chomsky also yields questions about his specialty linguistics.I found myself knowing the basics of most of what he speaks of in this book but he illuminates a lot of stuff, adds important and necessary commentary and ins [...]

A Genova si dice che il mugugno non si paga Noam Chomsky, con questo saggio intervista, dal mugugno riesce pure a ricavarci qualche soldino.La prima parte sembra scritta da un pensionato seduto su di una panchina davanti ad un cantiere edile i presidenti del suo paese sono tutti incapaci, soprattutto i dem, da Wilson A Roosevelt, da Truman a Kennedy, sino a Clinton ed Obama.Un po meglio se la cavano i repubblicani.Ancora meglio, i sovietici ed i vari dittatorucoli, da Gheddafi a Saddam.BahDa ver [...]

Good collection of interviews from 2010 2012 by long time Chomsky interrogator David Barsamian Includes a lengthy discussion of his linguistics work and his thoughts on social media and ebooks.Here are some quotes I liked Contrary to a lot of mythology, Kennedy was one of the hawks in the administration to the very last minute I think talk about American decline should be taken with a grain of salt Indian forces attacking the tribal areas are apparently using Israeli technology.Small countries h [...]

I like Chomsky, but I m no fanboy.This is the second book of Chomsky Barsamian conversations I ve read The first was How the World Works, which I read back in 2014 when I was very, very ignorant about global politics The content shocked me and made me realise how little I knew.I came to this collection with knowledge and was therefore able to be critical.Firstly the positives The conversational format makes the book very easy to read I ve ended up buying two Chomsky Barsamian books for quick, [...]

It should be a requirement for everyone to read a Noam Chomsky book His books are as enlightening as they can be punches into sobriety One thing Chomky s books have going against them, however, is that they can read as highly academic and specific to a certain topic, so it s hard for some readers to either keep up or make any sense of his books sometimes I know I m guilty of this.That s why I love Chomsky s interview books with so much and Power Systems with David Barsamian is no different Barsa [...]

Disclosure I received this audiobook for free through the first reads program.I come to this set of interviews with mixed feelings about Chomsky While I agree with a lot of what he has to say, I ve generally found what I ve heard of him to be sometimes simplified nearly to the point of conspiracy theory and occasionally loose with facts facts, speculation, and opinion are often blurred in his monologues But on the other hand, he often talks about things that Americans don t understand or don t p [...]

I read this book while sitting in line for the IRS As I read the book, I half listened to a security guard talk to people Apparently, the guard had said certain things to people so many times he just said them by wrote At one point the security guard started talking about a Manifesto by a guy named Stack Wait I thought to myself this sounds familiar , quickly I flipped through the pages of the book and found Chomsky talking about the exact same things, in almost the same terms The guard had neve [...]

This book addresses many subjects that have become of great concern and debate in recent years Some of the subjects Chomsky addresses are related to the economic superpowers that are currently on the rise, how the ephemeral quality of protest movements today contribute to their failure as opposed to the perseverance and great organizational tactics that was invested from the members of the civil rights movements of the past, and how that contributed to their success, as well as the slow transiti [...]

Don t get me wrong, I m not blaming or questionating Noam Chomsky here It s obvious he s legit when it comes to political issues The problem is not him, but it s whoever put this book together I don t think it was meant to be an introduction to Chomsky, but whatever it meant to be, it failed I remember David Foster Wallace who I do know better being asked such a broad array of questions in interview and it angered me because it was going nowhere.Chomsky is interesting whenever he goes in depth i [...]

Lots of insight and information on foreign policy as well as the U.S s role in subverting democracy But most intriguing in this collection were the chapters on Mental Slavery and the education system His idea of the education system is not surprisingly one that limits and boxes in available discourse but most intriguing is how he sees this process begin early on His thoughts on the corporatization of the university are also thought provoking The surprise section though was the chapter on univers [...]

Interviews David Barsamian had with Chomsky between 2010 2012 Fairly recent, with a broad scope The focus in this collection is on American imperialism capitalism and the failing of democracy As Chomsky is an icon of progressive thought, this short book under 200 pages should be an obligatory read for anyone interested in contemporary politics, economy and world affairs The interview form makes it not as dense and difficult as some of Chomsky s other publications, but it is still chockfull of co [...]

Noam Chomsky is amazing as always for his insight and his incredible breadth of knowledge He might be the most well read person on this planet What I really admire about him, though, is his ability to express his ideas about very complex and complicated political situations with utter clarity and simplicity To me, this is truly the sign that a person really knows what he is talking about No exaggerations, no dramatic language, no beating around the bush just clear, calm discussion Brilliant and [...]

This Chomsky guy can throw several well connected ideas in few words, and he says that anyone can do it No special talent required, perhaps just a tremendous amount of intellectual effort towards an intriguing subject I would love to read his opinion on the technology singularity that may happen if we manage to control global warming.

This is a great collection of conversations where Noam Chomsky delivers his thoughts on different global uprisings, from the Occupy movement to the peoples uprising in Syria and Egypt, to how the US has dealt with its domestic and international politics, from the murder of Osama Bin Ladin to how Barack Obama really isn t that much better than Bush 2.And, of course, it s Chomsky Part of the doctrinal system in the United States is the pretense that we re all a happy family, there are no class div [...]

Another great book for commutes This book is a collection of conversations I wouldn t call a conversation someone asking a question and the other one talking for half an hour on the subject, like an interview between Noam Chomsky and David Barsamian The structure, as pointed before, follows a simple approach where David either asks directly a question or points out some geopolitical situation phenomena, and then Noam gives his answer in short to long pseudo speeches where he outlines the situat [...]

Dr Chomsky is well spoken and clearly has such a depth of knowledge of history and politics that he can formulate in depth answers during unscripted interviews That said, I read books because I want to use my time efficiently on well thought out arguments that have been labored over and edited This collection of interviews never went deep enough to satisfy my curiosity and often opinions were offered as fact simply because they were tangential to the current interview topic and couldn t be elabo [...]

Noam Chomsky is simply an icon Listening to these interviews will show you how well versed Noam is on the human condition in the context of history of the recent power systems of the world It is so impressive His knowledge just flows like a hot volcano He is inspiring because he brings a clearer understanding of the world in a comprehensible orderly way He is a pragmatist, not a dogmatist, who wants power in the hands of the people with little concern over what you call it.

I find meatier Chomsky books hard to get into, or maybe I ve just been on Twitter for too long and can t focus on a paragraph of dense text any Whatever the reason, this book motivates me to discover of his work There are rewarding patterns of thought exposed in his dialogue with the interviewer, and so much of it makes sense Highly recommended.

Un libro regulero, de esos que cogen un se or famoso y uno que quiere escribir un libro y les ponen a hablar unas horas con una grabadora, lo transcriben y te sacan un libro Es cierto que Chomsky es elocuente y capaz de elaborar una narrativa coherente, pero a menudo acaba en el cu adeo Su an lisis a menudo es s lo una recopilaci n de an cdotas y carece de un marco interpretativo s lido.Cog este libro gratis de The Book Thing en Balti y me pareci feo deshacerme de l sin leerlo, pero no recomenda [...]
