Making the Future offers fierce, accessible, timely, gloves-off political writing by one of America's foremost intellectual and political dissidents. It presents more than fifty concise and persuasively argued commentaries on U.S. politics and policies, written between 2007 and 2011. Taken together, these essays present a powerful counter-narrative to official accounts of the major political events of the past four years including the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the United States presidential race, the ascendancy of China, developments in climate change, the world financial crisis, and more.
Praise for Making the Future
"He has emerged as one of the left's most implacable voices, challenging the often hidden structures that lie behind the abuse of power."
— Paul V. Griffith, Chapter 16
"Making the Future is an impressive collection of articles shedding light on and challenging the current political, economic, and military world order. To make sense of the complex mechanisms at play, Chomsky adopts a fundamentally interdisciplinary approach: he juggles with history, sociology of the media, critical theory, and political philosophy."
— Juliana Bidadanure, Global Discourse, 2013
