Starring: Noam Chomsky
One of the most respected intellectuals of the 20th century, Noam Chomsky has had a long and prolific career as a linguist, philosopher, and political activist. Undoubtedly, though, he is best known as the quintessential American voice of dissent. "Noam Chomsky On The World: The Chomsky Sessions" delves into the mind of the man himself through a series of candid interviews, lectures, and classroom discussions in which he traces the entire arc of 20th-century American politics, from 1920s public policy to 9/11. Even more important, the professor emeritus sketches out a history of resistance and struggle that is fundamental to his political thought and, he claims, to the American way of life. Tremendously informed and profoundly insightful, Chomsky guides us to a far deeper understanding of history, power, and the uniquely American privilege of protest. Thoroughly absorbing and edifying, "Noam Chomsky On The World: The Chomsky Sessions" profiles the critical thinking of a man who has spent his life striving to educate, to empower and, ultimately, to liberate.
