Özet
Hopes and Prospects is Noam Chomsky's indispensable analysis of the world at present and a roadmap for the future In Hopes and Prospects, Noam Chomsky examines the challenges of our early twenty-first century. He explores obstacles and threats such as the widening gap between North and South America, US exceptionalism (which continues under Obama), the fiascos of Iraq and Afghanistan, the US-Israeli assault on Gaza and the recent financial bailouts. He sees hope for the future and opportunities to move forward, however - in the democratic wave in Latin America and in the global solidarity movements which suggest 'real progress towards freedom and justice'. Hopes and Prospects is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand the primary challenges facing the human race in the coming years. 'A treasure-trove of truths that shouldn't be left buried in our sandpit of propaganda and lies' Johann Hari, Independent 'Noam Chomsky is a global phenomenon ...he may be the most widely read American voice on foreign policy on the planet today' The New York Times Book Review 'The west's most prominent critic of US imperialism ...the closest thing in the English-speaking world to an intellectual superstar' Guardian Noam Chomsky is the author of numerous bestselling political books, including Hegemony or Survival, Failed States, Interventions, Perilous Power, What We Say Goes, Imperial Ambitions, Making the Future, How the World Works, and Hopes and Prospects all of which are published by Hamish Hamilton/Penguin. He is a professor in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at MIT, and is widely credited with having revolutionized modern linguistics. He lives in Lexington, Massachusetts.
