In this important new collection of interviews with the acclaimed radio journalist David Barsamian, Noam Chomsky discusses U.S. foreign policy in the post-9/11 world. Barsamian has a unique rapport with Chomsky - having conducted more interviews and radio broadcasts with him than any other journalist - and here explores topics Chomsky has never before discussed- the 2004 presidential campaign and election; the future of Social Security; the increasing threat of global warming; and new dangers presented by the United States' ever-deepening entanglement in Iraq.The result is an illuminating dialogue with one of the world's leading thinkers - and a startling picture of the turbulent world in which we live.
