Noam Chomsky

Overview

Noam Chomsky is one of the world's most influential modern thinkers. He is an American linguist, philosopher, and political activist known for developing modern linguistics and the field of cognitive science. As an anarcho-syndicalist, Chomsky openly criticizes U.S. foreign policies, neoliberalism, and mass media.

David Barsamian is an Armenian-American investigative journalist, author, and radio broadcaster. He hosts the weekly radio program Alternative Radio, and his articles and interviews have been published in media such as The Progressive, Z Magazine, and The Sun.

How the World Works is a collection of essays Barsamian put together based on hours of interviews, as well as additional texts and edits by Chomsky. Originally, the book was published as four separate titles. It sold over half a million copies worldwide.
