Requiem for the American Dream is a work of some 70,000 words based on four years of interviews with Noam Chomsky on the subject of income equality. Chomsky considers these to be his final, long-form documentary interviews. It is a book that makes Chomsky's breadth and depth accessible, and at the same gives us his most powerful political ideas with unprecedented, directness. It will go down as one of his greatest and most lasting contributions. To be released in tandem with the film of the same name that was recently released in selected cinemas to rave reviews.

This brief introduction to the problems of capitalism in the 21st century isn't as in-depth as I might have preferred, but makes up for it with verbatim excerpts from some of the source documents referred to. I haven't seen the movie this was based on, but it does seem to be at the documentary-film level of depth. Generally, if you've been reading Adbusters or Naomi Klein in the last 20 years there isn't a lot new here, but as an introductory text, I liked it.
