Book Description
Timely, urgent, and powerfully elucidating, this important volume of previously unpublished interviews conducted by award-winning radio journalist David Barsamian features Noam Chomsky discussing Americas policies in an increasingly unstable world.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 ACLUs 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 timeand a startling picture of the turbulent times in which we live.

    A brilliant collection of interviews and conversations, Imperial Ambitions is a must-have for anyone interested in US foreign policy, and how it affects the world today.

    What this book's strong point is that it's not your typical Chomsky. Personally, I've found some of Chomsky's books, e.g. Hegemony or Survival, as a bit inaccessible and boring.

    Here, however, Chomsky doesn't write: he speaks, and he is much more accessible and understandable in this form. David Barsamian's skill to ask the right questions makes this book even more informative.

    Thus, Imperial Ambitions IS a must-buy, both informative and easily understandable.
