OPTIMISM OVER DESPAIR

Noam Chomsky, C.J. Polychroniou

On Capitalism, Empire, and Social Change

This volume offers readers a concise and accessible introduction to the ideas of Noam Chomsky, described by theNew York Times as 'arguably the most important intellectual alive.'

In these recent, wide-ranging interviews, conducted forTruthout by C. J. Polychroniou, Chomsky discusses his views on the 'war on terror' and the rise of neoliberalism, the refugee crisis and cracks in the European Union, prospects for a just peace in Israel/Palestine, the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, the dysfunctional US electoral system, the grave danger posed to humanity by the climate crisis, and the hopes, prospects, and challenges of building a movement for radical change.

Noam Chomsky is Institute Professor (Emeritus) in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at MIT. His work is widely credited with having revolutionized the field of modern linguistics. He is the author of numerous best-selling political works, which have been translated into scores of languages worldwide.

C. J. Polychroniou is a regular contributor toTruthout as well as a member ofTruthout's Public Intellectual Project. He has published several books and his articles have appeared in a variety of journals, magazines, newspapers, and popular news websites.
