Exploring such challenges as the growing gap between North and South in America, the fiascos of Iraq and Afghanistan, the Israeli assault on Gaza and costly financial bailouts, Noam Chomsky surveys the threats and also the prospects of the early 21st century. He sees hope for the future and a way to move forward in the so-called democratic wave in Latin America and in the global solidarity movements that suggest "real progress towards freedom and justice."
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."óJohn Pilger
