This original work considers the way in which power works within contemporary society. Included are exclusive interviews with Noam Chomsky, who speaks candidly on understanding power and the cost of dissent, and with Brian Martin, who speaks openly about the death of Dr. David Kelly, British weapons expert. Also includes an examination of “patriotic correctness” and the repression of dissent in America; post-9/11 media coverage and the war on terror; and the myth of the objective professional.
Contributors include: Paul Boin, James Winter, Jean Chen, Teresa Chen, Valerie Scatamburlo-D’Annibale, Robert Jensen, Peter Eglin, and Jeffery Klaehn.
