On Anarchism

On Anarchism

New Press | November 5, 2013 | 128 pages

Radical linguist, philosopher, and activist Noam Chomsky is widely recognized as one of the foremost intellectuals in contemporary America. Known for his denunciation of U.S. foreign policy, state capitalism, and the mainstream media, he is a fearless critic of established authority, a stance that is informed by his libertarian anarchism. Chomsky on Anarchism brings together a timely collection of key interviews and articles from across Chomsky's career, providing an invaluable introduction to the brand of anarchism that underpins Chomsky's political philosophy. Discussing its roots in the influence of his family, Chomsky is here found eloquently refuting the notion of anarchism as a fixed idea but rather as a living, evolving tradition. He disputes, too, the traditional fault lines between anarchism and socialism, emphasizing the power of collective, rather than individualist, action. Incorporating revealing interviews with Chomsky by writer Nathan Schneider that update each in light of today's events, this is a book that is sure to provoke and inspire. Profoundly relevant to our times, Chomsky on Anarchism is a touchstone for activists and anyone interested in politics and the man dubbed "our nation's conscience."
