Propaganda and the Public Mind : Conversations with David Barsamian
An invitation to take part in a conversation with one of the great minds of our time. First published in 2001, this book collects a series of discussions with the journalist David Barsamian. It is the perfect complement to Chomsky's major works of media study such as Manufacturing Consent and Necessary Illusions. Events discussed in detail are the so-called 'Battle of Seattle' protests against the World Trade Organisation, US involvement in East Timor, and the beginning of the movement towards a second Iraq War.
