The Precipice
  • The Precipice

  • A collection of interviews with the world's leading public intellectual from the time of the rise of Donald Trump to power to the end of his presidency. In it, Noam Chomsky sheds light into the phenomenon of Trumpism, exposes the catastrophic nature and impact of Trump's policies, the environment and the planet on the whole. He also captures the dynamics and contradictions operating today - from the brutal class warfare launched by the masters of capital to maintain and even enhance the features of a dog-eat dog society to the unprecedented mobilization of millions of people against neoliberal capitalism, racism, and police violence.

Noam Chomsky is the bestselling author of over 100 influential political books, including Hegemony or Survival, Imperial Ambitions, Failed States, Interventions, What We Say Goes, Hopes and Prospects, Making the Future, On Anarchism, Masters of Mankind and Who Rules the World. He has also been the subject of numerous books of biography and interviews and has collaborated with journalists on books such as Perilous Power, Gaza in Crisis, and On Palestine. Noam Chomsky is Institute Professor (emeritus) in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Laureate Professor of Linguistics and Agnese Nelms Haury Chair in the Program in Environment and Social Justice at the University of Arizona.
