'Walden Bello is the world's leading no-nonsense revolutionary. With plainspoken history and compelling evidence he ruthlessly exposes the opportunism, plunder and backroom bullying that passes for global capitalism. But this is more than a critique: Bello's expert diagnosis is that the patient is sicker than we think, and the time to act is now.' --Naomi Klein, author, No Logo
