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)

Synopsis

Around the world in Britain, the United States, Asia and the Middle East, there are people with power who are cashing in on chaos; exploiting bloodshed and catastrophe to brutally remake our world in their image. They are the shock doctors. Thrilling and revelatory, "The Shock Doctrine" cracks open the secret history of our era. Exposing these global profiteers, Naomi Klein discovered information and connections that shocked even her about how comprehensively the shock doctors' beliefs now dominate our world - and how this domination has been achieved. Raking in billions out of the tsunami, plundering Russia, exploiting Iraq - this is the chilling tale of how a few are making a killing while more are getting killed.
