Summary

This book illustrates the richness, depth and breadth of Chomsky's writing about human nature, science, politics and the media. Key contributions from leading experts on Chomsky demonstrate the ways in which his ideas and analysis bring a sharp focus and startling insight to our understanding of the human world.

They examine how Chomsky's works relate to fundamental debates in the social sciences generally, and contemporary political thought and practice in particular. Exploring his thinking as an activist, a scholar and someone with an unquenchable commitment to humanity and good science, it explains why it is time to sit up and take notice of how Chomsky has so successfully tackled the imponderables, the uncertainties, and the complexities of human social existence for well over fifty years, within a radical challenge to elitist and illegitimate power.
