In this urgent new book, Noam Chomsky examines the dangers and prospects of our early 21st century. Exploring challenges such as the growing gap between North and South, American exceptionalism (including under President Obama), the fiascos of Iraq and Afghanistan, the U.S.-Israeli assault on Gaza, and the recent recent financial bailouts, he also sees hope for the future. Chomsky surveys the democratic wave in Latin America and the growing global solidarity movements that suggest “progress toward freedom and justice”.
Hopes and Prospects is essential listening for anyone who is concerned about the primary challenges still facing the human race.
“This is a classic Chomsky work: a bonfire of myths and lies, sophistries and delusions. Noam Chomsky is an enduring inspiration all over the world for the simple reason that he is a truth-teller on an epic scale. I salute him.” (John Pilger, journalist and documentary filmmaker)

What's with this guy?
This guy is so subversive and delusional it goes beyond reason. Sure, America and Europe have faults, but he forgets the sacrifices and charity of so many in that set. That half Europe and America fought and many died to defeat the Nazi's and Imperial Japanese . That 4/5ths of Americans (not counting slaves) fought to end slavery. He ignores atrocities of many 3rd world civilizations or just conveniently blames those behaviours on European influence. This guy is so off-base it makes your head spin. His arguments are heuristic , rife with omission and described in only contexts favorable to his opinions.
The realization that he spreads his ill will around the globe and that he has an audience as delusional and/or agenda-driven as he is. Chomsky clearly has an audience that keeps his subversion machine rolling.
Bland, like the book.
Disappointment. He condemns the wicked European culture and praises all other cultures. He condemns hatred, except when it applies to the wicked European culture and its descendants. He has plenty of venom for them.
This book is misleading and frankly it sucks.
