From the Back Cover

'One of the radical heroes of our age ... A towering intellect.' The Guardian

'A superb polemicist who combines fluency of language with a formidable intellect.' The Observer

'Must be read by everyone concerned with public affairs.' Edward Said

Propaganda and the Public Mind draws on previously unpublished interviews with one of the world's leading thinkers. Chomsky offers a damning critique of the way our perceptions are shaped by global powerbrokers and yet shows how ordinary people can work together to break through the propaganda machine.

World renowned dissident Noam Chomsky offers insight into the institutions that shape the public mind in the service of power and profit. He discusses a range of issues, including the global growth in inequality and the military escapades of the United States. Chomsky offers hope for the future and shows how ordinary citizens, if they work together, have the power to make meaningful change. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
I found this a fascinating and relevant book. In this series of interviews Chomsky gives us deep insights into the consequences and responsibilities of power and position. He is very cynical and with his relentless logic he challenges us to ask questions too. He reminds us that even in "free" and democratic states there is a form of censorship.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who's worried about the direction that globalisation, trade wars and US domination is taking us.

Format: Paperback
Chomsky is always a good, if often disturbing, read. As usual he challenges the popular beliefs instilled by a media machine complicit in distracting the masses from the " hidden agendas" of our western governments.
This collection of interviews with David Barsamian is accessible and enlightening. Chomsky is, as suggested in the opening reviews, more at ease with Barsamian and this comes across in the book.
A worthy addition for the Chomsky afficionado and an excellent introduction to the man if you are curious as to why this man is a pivotal intellect in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Format: Paperback
This book is made up of transcripts of Noam Chomsky's interviews. As usual he challenges the commonly held beliefs and encourages us to wake up to the reality of what is being presented to us on a plate.
This book should inspire anyone who reads it to start looking at the media more objectively. Thoroughly reccomended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile Read for New Perspectives 16 Nov. 2004
By Brian Petula - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For the price, this is a worthwhile book that presents a different perspective on politics and current events. Just be warned this is not an objective treatment on the science or implementation of propaganda. I was looking for a book that explored how propaganda works and is managed. Instead, the author spends a lot of time criticizing policy and those he considers the power elite. I appreciate the author's point of view but tend to discount criticism that doesn't come with proposed solutions, examples, supporting data and facts.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Chomsky Lecture I've heard so far. 13 July 1999
By George B. Purdy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Speaking a length to a sympathetic audience at Harvard, the real Noam lets his hair down and gives qualifications and background for many of his statements that we are used to hearing. Lot's of references as well. It's a relaxed conversational tone; if your car has a cd player this will put you in a great mood on your way to work.

5.0 out of 5 stars chomsky rocks! 6 Feb. 2009
By Michael L. Love - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Noam Chomsky simply cannot be rated higher, and history will look back on his insights as a breath of refreshment. This one is as good a place to start with Chomsky as any. Very highly recommended!
