Product description

Review

"Impassioned, hugely informative, wonderfully controversial, and scary as hell." --John le Carré

"Bold and brilliantly conceived . . . Klein may well have revealed the master narrative of our time." --William S. Kowinski, San Francisco Chronicle

"This is a brilliant book, one of the most important I have read in a long time." --Howard Zinn

"Klein provides a rich description of the political machinations required to force unsavory economic policies on resisting countries and of the human toll. She paints a disturbing portrait of hubris, not only on the part of Friedman but also of those who adopted his doctrines, sometimes to pursue more corporatist objectives." --Joseph E. Stiglitz, The New York Times Book Review

"A brilliant, brave, and terrifying book. It's nothing less than the secret history of what we call the 'free market.' It should be compulsory reading." --Arundhati Roy

"Pulls the curtain back on free-market myths and exposes the forces that are really driving our economy . . . Klein's book is powerful and prophetic. . . . A brilliant dissection." --Arianna Huffington, The Huffington Post

"Naomi Klein is one of the most important new voices in American journalism today." --Seymour M. Hersh

"The Shock Doctrine is the defining, covert history of our era." --Jeremy Scahill, author of Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army
