Publisher's Summary

This program is read by the authors
In a compelling new set of interviews, Noam Chomsky identifies the "dry kindling" of discontent around the world that could soon catch fire.
In wide-ranging interviews with David Barsamian, his longtime interlocutor, Noam Chomsky asks listeners to consider "the world we are leaving to our grandchildren": one imperiled by the escalation of climate change and the growing potential for nuclear war. If the current system is incapable of dealing with these threats, he argues, it's up to us to radically change it.
These 12 interviews, conducted from 2013 to 2016, examine the latest developments around the globe: the devastation of Syria, the reach of state surveillance, growing anger over economic inequality, the place of religion in American political culture, and the bitterly contested 2016 US presidential election. In accompanying personal reflections on his Philadelphia childhood and his 87th birthday, Chomsky also describes his own intellectual journey and the development of his uncompromising stance as America's premier dissident intellectual.
Global Discontents is the perfect audiobook for politically engaged listeners interested in the future of America and the world.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Last chapters audio was horrible

The book throughout was a great dialogue and Chomsky offers some very prescient ideas & some great evaluations of what has gone in the past.
The last chapters audio was terrible, spoken in a droll monotone which lacks any sort of enthusiasm or spontaneous jokes/laughs which Chomsky frequently throws in, which for me makes it more listenable & real.
Would be awesome if you could just get the 2 together to finish the audio :)
