Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
NO LOGO was an international bestseller and "a movement bible" (The New York Times). Naomi Klein's second book, The Shock Doctrine, was hailed as a "master narrative of our time," and has over a million copies in print worldwide. In the last decade, No Logo has become an international phenomenon and a cultural manifesto for the critics of unfettered capitalism worldwide. As America faces a second economic depression, Klein's analysis of our corporate and branded world is as timely and powerful as ever. Equal parts cultural analysis, political manifesto, mall-rat memoir, and journalistic exposé, No Logo is the first book to put the new resistance into pop-historical and clear economic perspective. Naomi Klein tells a story of rebellion and self-determination in the face of our new branded world.
About the Author
When we invited journalist and activist Naomi Klein to campus in the fall of 2004, five years after the international success of her bestselling first book, "No Logo: Taking Aim at the Brand Bullies", she was a literary star. She had recently returned from a trip to Iraq for "Harper's Magazine", which would form the foundation of her next book, "Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism". We expected she would draw a crowd, so we moved the lecture into the 400-seat St. Thomas University chapel and set up an overflow room downstairs in the cafeteria. When Klein arrived and discovered the overflow room was full, she insisted on stopping there first to address them in person for a few minutes. She said she is always running late; the people in the overflow room were her people. A version of the talk she gave that evening was published in "Harper's".
Praise for Naomi Klein: "Naomi Klein is one of the most important new voices in American journalism today."--Seymour M. Hersh "Superstar intellectual of a new left that hasn't caught up with her yet."--Rolling Stone Praise for NO LOGO: "No Logo has been a pedagogical godsend. I used it to illustrate contemporary applications of complex cultural theories in an introductory social science sequence. It worked so beautifully, word about the book spread across campus, and other students were begging to read it in their sections of the course."—Bruce Novak, Division of Social Sciences, The University of Chicago
"A complete, user-friendly handbook on the negative effects that 1990s überbrand marketing has had on culture, work, and consumer choice."—The Village Voice
"The Das Kapital of the growing anti-corporate movement."—The London Observer
“Klein is a sharp cultural critic and a flawless storyteller. Her analysis is thorough and thoroughly engaging.”—Newsweek.com
“No Logo is an attractive sprawl of a book describing a vast confederacy of activist groups with a common interest in reining in the power of lawyering, marketing, and advertising to manipulate our desires.”—The Boston Globe
