The shock doctrine : the rise of disaster capitalism by Naomi Klein( Book )

112 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in 19 languages and held by 3,883 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Journalist Klein introduced the term "disaster capitalism." Whether covering Baghdad after the U.S. occupation, Sri Lanka after the tsunami, or New Orleans post-Katrina, she witnessed remarkably similar events: people still reeling were hit again, this time with economic "shock treatment," losing their land and homes to corporate makeovers. This book retells the story of Milton Friedman's free-market economic revolution. In contrast to the myth of this movement's peaceful global victory, Klein shows how it has exploited moments of shock and extreme violence in order to implement its economic policies. At its core is the use of cataclysmic events to advance radical privatization combined with the privatization of the disaster response itself. Klein argues that by capitalizing on crises, created by nature or war, the disaster capitalism complex now exists as a booming new economy, the violent culmination of a radical economic project that has been incubating for fifty years.--From publisher description
No space, no choice, no jobs, no logo : taking aim at the brand bullies by Naomi Klein( Book )

92 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,041 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published before the World Trade Organization protests in Seattle, this is an infuriating, inspiring, and altogether pioneering work of cultural criticism that investigates money, marketing, and the anti-corporate movement. Klein employs journalistic savvy and personal testament to detail the insidious practices and far-reaching effects of corporate marketing--and the powerful potential of a growing activist movement. As global corporations compete for the hearts and wallets of consumers who not only buy their products but willingly advertise them from head to toe--witness today's schoolbooks, superstores, sporting arenas, and brand-name synergy--a new generation has begun to battle consumerism with its own best weapons. In this frontline report on that battle, we learn how the Nike swoosh has changed from an athletic status symbol to a metaphor for sweatshop labor, and how "culture jammers" utilize spray paint, computer-hacking acumen, and anti-propagandist wordplay to undercut the slogans and meanings of billboard ads.--From publisher description
This changes everything : capitalism vs. the climate by Naomi Klein( Book )

45 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 2,453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Forget everything you think you know about global warming. The really inconvenient truth is that it's not about carbon--it's about capitalism. The convenient truth is that we can seize this existential crisis to transform our failed economic system and build something radically better. In her most provocative book yet, Naomi Klein tackles the most profound threat humanity has ever faced: the war our economic model is waging against life on earth. Klein exposes the myths that are clouding the climate debate. We have been told the market will save us, when in fact the addiction to profit and growth is digging us in deeper every day. We have been told it's impossible to get off fossil fuels, when in fact we know exactly how to do it--it just requires breaking every rule in the "free market" playbook: reining in corporate power, rebuilding local economies, and reclaiming our democracies. We have also been told that humanity is too greedy and selfish to rise to this challenge. In fact, all around the world, the fight for the next economy and against reckless extraction is already succeeding in ways both surprising and inspiring. Climate change, Klein argues, is a civilizational wake-up call, a powerful message delivered in the language of fires, floods, storms, and droughts. Confronting it is no longer about changing the light bulbs. It's about changing the world--before the world changes so drastically that no one is safe. Either we leap--or we sink. Once a decade, Naomi Klein writes a book that redefines its era. This one is about to upend the debate about the stormy era already upon us"--

Fences and windows : dispatches from the front lines of the globalization debate by Naomi Klein( Book )

62 editions published between 1984 and 2013 in 14 languages and held by 1,110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fences and Windows collects Naomi Klein's most notable articles and speeches, many of them never before published, on such issues as NAFTA, genetically modified organisms and economic fundamentalism. This book also reflects on the nature of resistance: the street protests that have shocked and energized millions, the purpose of carnival-style subversion, and the apparent disorganization that is the movement's great strength."--Jacket

A line in the tar sands : struggles for environmental justice( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fight over the tar sands in North America is among the epic environmental and social justice battles of our time, and one of the first that has managed to marry quite explicitly concern for frontline communities and immediate local hazards with fear for the future of the entire planet. Tar sands "development" comes with an enormous environmental and human cost. But tar sands opponents-fighting a powerful international industry-are likened to terrorists; government environmental scientists are muzzled; and public hearings are concealed and rushed. Yet, despite the formidable political and economic power behind the tar sands, many opponents are actively building international networks of resistance, challenging pipeline plans while resisting threats to Indigenous sovereignty and democratic participation. Including leading voices involved in the struggle against the tar sands, A Line in the Tar Sands offers a critical analysis of the impact of the tar sands and the challenges opponents face in their efforts to organize effective resistance. Contributors include Angela Carter, Bill McKibben, Brian Tokar, Christine Leclerc, Clayton Thomas-Muller, Crystal Lameman, Dave Vasey, Emily Coats, Eriel Deranger, Greg Albo, Jeremy Brecher, Jess Worth, Jesse Cardinal, Joshua Kahn Russell, Lilian Yap, Linda Capato, Macdonald Stainsby, Martin Lukacs, Matt Leonard, Melina Laboucan-Massimo, Naomi Klein, Rae Breaux, Randolph Haluza-DeLay, Rex Weyler, Ryan Katz-Rosene, Sâkihitowin Awâsis, Sonia Grant, Stephen D'Arcy, Toban Black, Tony Weis, Tyler McCreary, Winona LaDuke, and Yves Engler

No war : America's real business in Iraq( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an anthology by multiple authors of articles first published in Harper's magazine about the economic dimension of the U.S. war on Iraq. One of them, originally titled "Baghdad Year Zero", is Naomi Klein's account of her time there. Contrary to today's news headlines, there always was a detailed plan for what would happen to postwar Iraq. But it had little do with the banners under which the American and British governments cynically marketed their invasion of Iraq - democracy, freedom and fighting terrorism. As if in a giant hostile takeover, the real intentions of the Iraqi invasion were dishonestly disguised: the wiping out of an entire culture in as short a time as possible. Within days of the occupation of Iraq began a firesale of its national assets. Everything was engineered to indenture for generations to come an already impoverished population to foreign investors, while teaching the new belief that greed is good. This scathing J'Accuse tears the veil off the hypocrisy of the actions of Tony Blair and George W. Bush

The Seattle syndrome( Visual )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part 7 of a series on how the globalized world economy affects ordinary people. Many people in the Third World feel they are being penalized when they face drastic import controls for turning their raw materials into manufactured goods. Now they're also running up against the Seattle Syndrome -- an alliance of liberals and protectionists who want more restrictions on trade to fight poor wages and exploitative working conditions. But is this a justifiable way of fighting globalization -- or a kind of colonialism in disguise? The film also examines the garment industry of the Philippines as an example
