|Hopes and Prospects
|In Hopes and Prospects, Noam Chomsky examines the challenges of our early twenty-first century. He explores obstacles and threats such as the widening gap between North and South America, US exceptionalism (which continues under Obama), the fiascos of Iraq and Afghanistan, the US-Israeli assault on Gaza and the recent financial bailouts.
He sees hope for the future and opportunities to move forward, however — in the democratic wave in Latin America and in the global solidarity movements which suggest ‘real progress towards freedom and justice’.
Hopes and Prospects is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand the primary challenges facing the human race in the coming years.
