Click for availability and more information Books of Interviews by David Barsamian

Founder and director of the widely syndicated weekly show "Alternative Radio", David Barsamian is known for interviewing guests not normally given time in the corporate-owned media. Among these diverse voices of dissent are two of the greatest intellectuals of our time, Noam Chomsky and Howard Zinn. Barsamian has interviewed them both so often that he has compiled one book each out of their radio transcripts. Imperial Ambitions: Conversations with Noam Chomsky on the Post-9/11 World and The Future of History are both books that I highly recommend to anyone interested in political ideas. Readers who have never been exposed to Zinn or Chomsky will find these books short, well-organized introductions to the thoughts of the interviewees. I was especially impressed with Barsamian's ability to transfer Zinn's sense of humor from the airwaves to the written page.
