One of the foremost critics of U.S. foreign policy delivers his insight into the ways that popular activism has led to substantial gains in freedom and justice around the world--and how those gains can be reached in the United States.
Annotation:
The indefatigable Noam Chomsky provides a powerful appraisal of the global political landscape in the 21st century. Chomsky explores American policies in Iraq and Afghanistan, calling them catastrophic; and he critiques Israeli actions in Gaza, characterizing them as endless aggression. For examples of political progress and social justice, Chomsky looks to the democracies of South America--with special attention to grassroots activism in Bolivia and Haiti.
Author Bio
Noam Chomsky
Noam Chomsky has had an important impact on the field of linguistics as well as in political science, where he has been a tireless critic of Western imperialism. Through a prodigious output of published material in pamphlets, lectures, interviews, and prose, he has been especially critical of the United States and its relation to Third World countries. Chomsky graduated from Harvard with a Ph.D. in 1955, and he has long been affiliated with MIT. His linguistic theories concern the nature of language and how it is learned, a faculty he considers innate, or "hard-wired"; in describing his theories, he has invented such terms as "universal grammar," "deep structure," and "transformational grammar." Chomsky's upbringing in the depression has been cited by many critics as the source of his social conscience; so has his youth on the the West Side of New York City, where, as the son of a Hebrew scholar, he encountered a literate and engaged Jewish immigrant community.The intellectual milieu of MIT and Boston, and his status as an adult who was somewhat of a hero to the '60s counterculture are also worth noting. Chomsky has been a strong critic of America's war in Vietnam as well as the role of multinational corporations in the Third World and the Middle East.

Expert Review Hopes and Prospects by Noam Chomsky - Book Review
By: Jordan Richardson Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 6/10/2010 4:29 AM
Noam Chomsky’s Hopes and Prospects is a dazzling, informative, arresting piece of work that serves to confirm why one of America’s leading dissident voices may be, according to the New York Times Book Review, “one of the most widely read American voice(s) on foreign policy on the planet today.” The book is incredibly timely and incredibly thorough, reserving safe ground for no-one and exploring the challenges and problems facing us in today’s changing world. Hopes and Prospects is essentially a collection of essays that Chomsky has adapted and/or expanded to meet more modern purposes....read the full review
