FEATURING NAOMI KLEIN – Seventeen years ago journalist and author Naomi Klein burst into international fame with her best-selling book No Logo: Taking Aim at the Brand Bullies.
Then, a decade ago Klein wrote her next book which became even more popular: “The Shock Doctrine,” a global exploration of historical events that fit a disturbing pattern: how corporate elites use natural or man-made disasters to coerce a disoriented population with the “shock therapy” of more deregulation and even more unfettered capitalism.
Now, in 2017, Klein has combined the years of research from her earlier books to help understand how the Donald Trump Presidency came about and to warn us of the shocks that are yet to come and how we can best combat them. Already a bestseller, the new book is called No Is Not Enough: Resisting the New Shock Politics and Winning the World We Need.
Naomi Klein, best-selling author of No Is Not Enough: Resisting the New Shock Politics and Winning the World We Need, award-winning journalist, syndicated columnist and author of the international bestsellers, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs The Climate (2014), The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism (2007) and No Logo (2000). She is also a Senior Correspondent for The Intercept, a Puffin Foundation Writing Fellow at The Nation Institute and contributor to the Nation Magazine.
