An enormous chronological collection of over fifty interviews conducted with Chomsky from 1968 to present day. Many of the pieces have never appeared in any other collection, some have never appeared in English, and more than one has been suppressed. This expanded edition contains fifty pages of brand new interviews.

The interviews add a personal dimension to the full breadth of Chomsky s impressive written canon equally covering his analysis in linguistics, philosophy, and politics. This updated, annotated, fully indexed new edition contains an extensive bibliography, as well as an intro-duction by editor Carlos Otero on the relationship between Chomsky s language and politics.

Praise for previous edition:

"For those who know [Chomsky] only as media analyst and critic of foreign policy, this wide-ranging book offers glimpses of his studies on language, anarchist theory, and critiques of radical politics." NACLA
