The shock doctrine : the rise of disaster capitalism by Naomi Klein( Book )
95 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in 15 languages and held by 3,710 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 )
168 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in 16 languages and held by 3,599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
First published before the World Trade Organization protests in Seattle, this book is a work of cultural criticism that investigates money, marketing, and the anti-corporate movement. Klein details 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 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 's description
The corporation by Mark Achbar( Visual )
24 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This documentary explores the history, inner workings, controversial impacts and potential future of big corporations. It reveals behind-the-scenes tensions and influences in several corporate and anti-corporate dramas, through jaw-dropping case studies and true confessions.

The prognosis is grim for human beings, the environment, democracy and the very survival of our planet. The series includes a multitude of views through interviews with CEOs and top-level executives from the wold's largest corporation: oil, pharmaceutical, tire, computer, manufacturing, public relations, branding, advertising and undercover marketing. Included are 42 interviews with CEOs and top executives from Pfizer, Gooyear Tire, Royal Dutch Shell, Burson Marsteller, Landor and Associates, IBM, Milton Friedman, Noam Chomsky, Peter Drucker, Vandana Shiva, Naomi Klein, and Michael Moore
This changes everything : capitalism vs. the climate by Naomi Klein( Book )
22 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Dutch and held by 1,428 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 lightbulbs. 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.--From publisher description

"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."--BOOK JACKET

Erst Schock durch Krieg oder Katastrophe, dann der so genannte Wiederaufbau. So lautet die immer gleiche Strategie. Ob in Bagdad oder Afghanistan nach der Invasion, ob in New Orleans nach "Katrina" oder in Sri Lanka nach dem Tsunami: Während die Menschen noch gelähmt von der Katastrophe sind, werden sie einer weiteren, diesmal ökonomischen "SchockBehandlung" nach den neoliberalen Vorstellungen unterzogen.
