Some of the questions that Chomsky answers in this second volume of interviews with David Barsamian include: why do nightly newscasts increasingly feature violent crimes?; how does the American political economy supercede gender and race?; when do "family values" equal increasing numbers of children in poverty?
Chomsky tackles the shibboleths of our age with characteristic insight, providing an indispensable introduction to his political ideas.
