Two of the twentieth century s most influential thinkers debate a perennial question br In at the height of the Vietnam War and at a time of great political and social instability two of the world s leading intellectuals Noam Chomsky and Michel Foucault were invited by Dutch philosopher Fons Edlers to debate an age old question is there such a thing as innate human nature independent of our experiences and external influences br The resulting dialogue is one of the most original provocative and spontaneous exchanges to have occurred between contemporary philosophers and above all serves as a concise introduction to their basic theories What begins as a philosophical argument rooted in linguistics Chomsky and the theory of knowledge Foucault soon evolves into a broader discussion encompassing a wide range of topics from science history and behaviorism to creativity freedom and the struggle for justice in the realm of politics br In addition to the debate itself this volume features a newly written introduction by noted Foucault scholar John Rajchman and includes additional text by Noam Chomsky, 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, From the world s foremost intellectual activist an irrefutable analysis of America s pursuit of total domination amp the catastrophic consequences that are sure to follow br The USA is in the process of staking out not just the globe but the last unarmed spot in the neighborhood the heavens as a militarized sphere of influence Earth amp its skies are for the Bush administration the final frontiers of imperial control i Hegemony or Survival i investigates how we came to this what kind of peril we re in amp why rulers are willing to jeopardize the future of our species With his trademark logic Chomsky dissects the quest for global supremacy tracking the government s aggressive pursuit of policies intended to achieve full spectrum dominance at any cost He lays out how the various strands of policy militarization of space the ballistic missile defense program unilateralism dismantling of international agreements amp the response to the Iraqi crisis cohere in a hegemonic drive threatening survival In our era he argues empire is a recipe for an earthly wasteland Lucid rigorous fully documented i Hegemony or Survival i promises to be his most urgent amp sweeping work in years certain to spark widespread debate, div div div b It s hard to imagine any American reading this book and not seeing his country in a new and deeply troubling light i The New York Times Book Review i b div div br The United States has repeatedly asserted its right to intervene militarily against failed states around the globe In this much anticipated follow up to his international bestseller i Hegemony or Survival i Noam Chomsky turns the tables showing how the United States itself shares features with other failed states suffering from a severe democratic deficit eschewing domestic and international law and adopting policies that increasingly endanger its own citizens and the world Exploring the latest developments in U S foreign and domestic policy Chomsky reveals Washington s plans to further militarize the planet greatly increasing the risks of nuclear war He also assesses the dangerous consequences of the occupation of Iraq documents Washington s self exemption from international norms including the Geneva conventions and the Kyoto Protocol and examines how the U S electoral system is designed to eliminate genuine political alternatives impeding any meaningful democracy div div br Forceful lucid and meticulously documented i Failed States i offers a comprehensive analysis of a global superpower that has long claimed the right to reshape other nations while its own democratic institutions are in severe crisis Systematically dismantling the United States pretense of being the world s arbiter of democracy i Failed States i is Chomsky s most focused and urgent critique to date div div div
