Chomsky is back, contesting official versions of history and today's news in two powerful lectures and a 45-minute interview. While each piece stands alone, they also complement one another to provide both a farranging view of world politics and a glimpse into Chomsky's personal political beliefs that is both entertaining and informative.
In two lectures and a 45-minute interview, intellectual and political activist Noam Chomsky -- credited as the father of modern linguistics -- delivers an unabashed criticism of the Bush administration's record on terrorism, framing the president's invasion of Iraq as part of an "imperial grand strategy." Filmed in 2003, this collection of Chomsky's personal views also provides an effective overview of the global political climate. -- Description provided by TMDb
