Optimism Over Despair

by Noam Chomsky - £6.00  Penguin Books Ltd (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780241981979 | ISBN 10: 0241981972

An essential overview of the problems of our world today -- and how we should prepare for tomorrow -- from the world's leading public intellectual.
 
We have two choices. We can be pessimistic, give up, and help ensure that the worst will happen. Or we can be optimistic, grasp the opportunities that surely exist, and maybe help make the world a better place. Not much of a choice.
 
From peerless political thinker Noam Chomsky comes an exploration of rising neoliberalism, the refugee crisis in Europe, the Black Lives Matter movement, the dysfunctional US electoral system, and the prospects and challenges of building a movement for radical change.
 
Including four up-to-the-minute interviews on the 2016 American election campaign and global resistance to Trump, this Penguin Special is a concise introduction to Chomsky's ideas and his take on the state of the world today.
