Product description

Review

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

Packed with thinking dynamite … a book to be read everywhere, John Berger

If you read only one non-fiction book this year, make it this one -- , Books of the Year, Metro

There are few books that really help us understand the present. The Shock Doctrine is one of those books -- John Gray, Guardian

Lucid, calm, impeccably researched, gorgeously readable -- , Books of the Year, Observer

A brilliant, brave and terrifying book, Arundhati Roy

Powerful … epic … dramatic, Daily Telegraph

A brilliant book written with a perfectly distilled anger, channelled through hard fact. She has indeed surpassed No Logo, Independent

Excoriating … passionate and informed … Her prose packs a punch, Scotsman

About the Author

Born in Montreal in 1970, Naomi Klein is an award-winning journalist and author of the international bestseller No Logo, which was shortlisted for the Guardian first book award. Translated into twenty-five languages, No Logo was called "a movement bible" and placed Naomi Klein at the vanguard of a new wave of considering globalisation and corporations. In Blank is Beautiful, Klein will once again revolutionize our way of thinking.Naomi Klein writes an internationally syndicated column for the Guardian and her articles appear in numerous publications, including The Nation, The New Statesman, Newsweek International, the New York Times and the Village Voice. A collection of her work, titled Fences and Windows- Dispatches from the Front Lines of the Globalization Debate, was published in October 2002. For the past six years, Klein has travelled throughout North America, Asia, Latin America and Europe, tracking the rise of anticorporate activism. She is a frequent media commentator and university guest lecturer and was a Miliband Fellow at the London School of Economics. Her latest book is The Shock Doctrine- The Rise of Disaster Capitalism (Penguin, 2007).
