Publisher's Summary

In The Precipice, Noam Chomsky sheds light into the phenomenon of Trumpism, exposes the catastrophic nature and impact of Trump's policies on people, the environment, and the planet as a whole, and captures the dynamics of 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.

Of Incalculable Importance

Noam Chomsky's unique perspective is more important now than ever before. Truly on the precipice of collapse, America has been hijacked into the believes of a radical ideology created to aid the interests of the ultra wealthy. The commentaries expressed in this title lay bare the atrocities of those "masters of the universe."

Rich in sarcasm....

There seemed to be a lot of good information in this book that, I believe, should be heard by all. Unfortunately, it was so overcast by the thick layers of sarcasm (which I'm generally quite fond of but maybe not with this subject matter) that I don't imagine it will be very informative to those coming from an inquisitively right viewpoint. If this book was solely for the more left leaning audience, then it will probably be well received. Other than that, my only critique would be that it was a bit repetitive.
