Venerated Left Intellectual Chomsky On Activism & Politics



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Noam Chomsky about activism and politics.

One of the most well-known left intellectual scholars and authors, Noam Chomsky, in a new book Chomsky for Activists, delves into his formative years as a young Jewish American youth opposing the march of fascism in Europe, his friendship with historian Howard Zinn, his reflections on Zionism and Palestine and more. Now in his 90s, Chomsky remains one of the most cited living scholars in modern history and yet is not as well known in the United States as he is outside its borders.

Considered the founder of modern linguistics, Noam Chomsky is one of the most cited scholars in modern history and the author of countless books on politics, U.S. foreign policy, and more. His books include Manufacturing Consent with Ed Herman, Hegemony or Survival, Requiem for the American Dream, Understanding Power and more. His latest book, with Charles Derber, Suren Moodliar, and Paul Shannon is called Chomsky for Activists.
