Conversations on the Post-9/11 World. If, for reasons of chance, or circumstance, (or sloth), you have to pick just one book on the subject of the American Empire, I'd say pick this one. It's the Full Monty. It's Chomsky at his best.

Conversations on the Post-9/11 World. Conversations on the Post-9/11 World. Arundhati Roy. How did we ever get to be an empire? The writings of Noam Chomsky-America's most useful citizen-are the best answer to that question.

Noam Chomsky does believe that as horrible as things are "another world is possible", but a more just and sane world is only possible if all of us work . I have no criticism of the book,its content or Noam Chomsky himself. In fact, I have been a Noam Chomsky admirer for decades

Noam Chomsky does believe that as horrible as things are "another world is possible", but a more just and sane world is only possible if all of us work together to make it a reality. In other words, get active. In fact, I have been a Noam Chomsky admirer for decades. However, it now bwing the year 2010, most of the material and insight in this little book is no longer terribly new or shocking to many.

In this first collection of interviews since the bestselling 9-11, our foremost intellectual activist examines crucial new questions of U.S. foreign policy

Timely, urgent, and powerfully elucidating, this important volume of previously unpublished interviews conducted by award-winning radio journalist David Barsamian features Noam Chomsky discussing America's policies in an increasingly unstable world. With his famous insight, lucidity, and redoubtable grasp of history, Chomsky offers his views on the invasion and occupation of Iraq, the doctrine of "preemptive" strikes against so-called rogue states, and the prospects of the second Bush administration, warning of the growing threat to international peace posed by the U.S. drive for domination. In his inimitable style, Chomsky also dissects the propaganda system that fabricates a mythic past and airbrushes inconvenient facts out of history.

Barsamian, recipient of the ACLU's Upton Sinclair Award for independent journalism, has conducted more interviews and radio broadcasts with Chomsky than has any other journalist. Enriched by their unique rapport, Imperial Ambitions explores topics Chomsky has never before discussed, among them the 2004 presidential campaign and election, the future of Social Security, and the increasing threat, including devastating weather patterns, of global warming. The result is an illuminating dialogue with one of the leading thinkers of our time―and a startling picture of the turbulent times in which we live.

Reviews:
  • Mezilabar
Great introduction to the views of world renowned political dissident and critic of US foreign policy par excellence Noam Chomsky. Once again teamed up with long time friend and interviewer David Barsamian the pair cover:
-imperial ambitions of the US power-elite
-how language is used and abused in the service of power
-what "regime change" is all about along with wars of aggression
-history and memory and the complete absence of the latter despite the former being long and present for all willing to see
-the myth that US power is benevolent but sometimes just makes honest mistakes in her quest to bring democracy and prosperity to all

Chomsky states his goal here, as always, is to help YOU defend yourself intellectually.
You don't get that from the education system.

Noam Chomsky does believe that as horrible as things are "another world is possible", but a more just and sane world is only possible if all of us work together to make it a reality. In other words, get active.

I have no criticism of the book,its content or Noam Chomsky himself. In fact, I have been a Noam Chomsky admirer for decades. However, it now bwing the year 2010, most of the material and insight in this little book is no longer terribly new or shocking to many. The book is excelent in its observations and conclusions and I think it would be a great book for any reader who is for whatever reason unfamiliar with either Chomsky or the historical & moral aspects of 911, and wide reaching US Foreign Policy. When purchasing (and you can NOW get it now VERY affordably) just keep in mind when this book was published and enjoy the wisdom and thoughtfulness of one of Americas greatest social critics & activists.

This book should be a compulsory reading for anyone who has even a passing interest in world affairs, specially in today's uncertain times. Chomsky again penetrates to the heart of the matter, with adequate evidence and laid bare the hypocrisy that is power.

The book is short, with bite-sized pieces, making it easy for the first-timer or non-poly sci major to absorb. I know, I was both.
I've been called so right wing I can't make a left turn, but lately, like many, I've been disillusioned. I'm also not a goose-steppin' follower - I have my own thoughts. While being 'conservative' in this country is becoming difficult, especially as the definition changes, I still consider myself conservative. I'm not a neo-con, however. The point of this is how I came to read Chomsky.
I feel that there's much we 'conservatives' have had to swallow in the past few years. Thinly vieled lies - and outright ones! - make it hard to just go along with our leaders. I started to read some of the material that the other side puts out - and a lot made sense. This book became my first foray into Chomsky's stuff. I now have a half dozen of his books.
I don't always agree with him and sometimes I wonder if he says/writes things just to prove he can be as ridiculous as the right, but I can't deny his intellect. As well, linguistics is a field that fascinates me. (If you don't know, that's what Chomsky is at MIT, a linguist.)
Look, whether you're left or right, he's good reading. And if you're able look at both sides - this is a good start.

Reading Chomsky in the USA for the first time must be some kind of a shock for the average american...but for us in third world countries is nothing more than a reminder of our daily reality. What Chomsky says about propaganda and mind control in USA ...well..kind of make us think. Is it possible that with all the info that you get in the internet today ...you can not be aware of the facts...??? Is it possible that everybody in the world knew that the invasion of Iraq was not justified and that the majority of USA citizens did not??? Why the USA people are so afraid..??? Can somebody explain this ??? Nobody hates americans for being americans ( very nice people for all I know) or for living in a great and beautiful country ...so why be afraid?? Now..your foreign policy toward us has been unfair for the majority of our people and in some countries ( Central America) supported genocidal actions. And the people of the USA has never being informed of the truth by the mainstream media or by the people upstairs....Ok...but you can do your homework and your own research...and learn what is really happening...and then you'll know why your own Govt' keeps you in a state of fear.. Does the american public cares or not when they read the news regarding USA military torturing innocent people ??? How come they are surprised about this...and we are not?? How come that we know this is standard procedure in countries invaded by the USA or controlled by them using local military.. By the way, some of the local military leaders, trained in the infamous Escuela de las Americas.. And the average american does not know this!!!?? We think it should be in your interest to learn the truth.

We in Latin America, in almost every country, suffered long and cruel dictatorships ( a lot of them sponsored by USA Govts') ...so we HAVE REAL reasons to be afraid of...the USA.. We do not live in the constant fear that Mr. Chomsky describes in his book... well, we do not live in constant fear , but we are afraid of what the future will bring for our children with the kind of fundamentalism that rules today the only superpower in the world....rulers that look down on us as if we were sub-humans or just "naughty children"...
Chomsky...always a good read. Maybe he is not 100% true..but he is close.
