Fences and Windows, as Naomi Klein states, is not a sequel to "No Logo". Rather, it is a collection of speeches and articles compiled by her over the last few years.
Therein lies the problem with this book. For someone wanting a thorough insight into the trends of the 'globalisation debate' this book offers very very little subject matter. Considering how all the writings are magazine articles subjects are covered with very little depth, and no real insight or analysis.
I found the book tedious after a while and repetitive, as many of the articles overlap. Also, since the articles are not in chronological order throughout, you find yourself revisiting the same summits and debates, with no additional information/understanding.
A much better insight, in my opinion, would be Paul Kingsnorth's "One No, Many Yeses". This book truly offered and original and objective approach to the movement.
