Here diverse and sophisticated radical/left interpretation is combined with divergent opinions on the question of violence, race and the future. Essays and contributions from Stanly Aronowitz, Alexander Cockburn, Peter Lanborn and Medea Benjamin plus an original interview with Noam Chomsky that questions Chomsky's understanding of social movements.
