Noam Chomsky is universally accepted as one of the preeminent public intellectuals of the modern era. Over the past thirty years, broadly diverse audiences have gathered to attend his sold-out lectures. Now, in Understanding Power, Peter Mitchell and John Schoeffel have assembled the best of Chomsky’s recent talks on the past, present, and future of the politics of power. In a series of enlightening and wide-ranging discussions, all published here for the first time, Chomsky radically reinterprets the events of the past three decades, covering topics from foreign policy during Vietnam to the decline of welfare under the Clinton administration. And as he elucidates the connection between America’s imperialistic foreign policy and the decline of domestic social services, Chomsky also discerns the necessary steps to take toward social change. With an eye to political activism and the media’s role in popular struggle, as well as U.S. foreign and domestic policy, Understanding Power offers a sweeping critique of the world around us and is definitive Chomsky. Characterized by Chomsky’s accessible and informative style, this is the ideal book for those new to his work as well as for those who have been listening for years.… (mehr)

Understanding Power covers a wide range of Chomsky's knowledge and opinion. Full of illuminating discourse between groups of activists and Chomsky himself, each chapter follows a string of speaking events held from the mid-eighties through the late-nineties covering everything from the expected analysis of US foreign policy to Chomsky's own self-doubt throughout his years of activism.

Through historical reference and Chomsky's personal anecdotes, Understanding Power conveys the importance of the well-informed citizen as a cornerstone of any free society while emphasizing the necessity of international solidarity and cautioning that the knowledge of one means nothing without the knowledge of many.

First contact with Chomsky. He managed to put words on so many ideas I've been feeling.
Conferences up until 1997 but his predictions about Climate, Extremists, 2016 Election, Internet have been on point so far.
Bleak yet hopeful. What a journey. In the end, his ideas are not important, just starting to think from first principle is the key to seing the world as it is: Humans have not achieved true democracy yet. ( )
