Well worth reading. ( )

This book is a collection of Naomi Klein's articles written from late 1999 to 2001. They give both a powerful description of the political landscape, and a blueprint for an alternative world. Sadly, some 14 years later, the movement has been slight but, in many ways, perhaps things have to get worse before the majority will accept radical surgery to our political systems.

Klein makes a powerful case for a diminution of the top down leadership which is prevalent in almost every country. She cites some interesting examples of micro systems and revolutionaries not looking for power and it is possible to espy a better world: the danger is, of course, that the super structures that rule will strangle the new order at birth.

This is the best of Klein's books which I have read to date and, even after nearly 15 years, had plenty of ideas to digest. This may not contain the ultimate solution to life, the universe and everything, but it points in a helpful direction. ( )

Naomi Klein updates us with the latest ways Activists are putting up Windows to Democracy when fenced in with the imposed demands of Wild Capitalism with it's attendant manifestation Shock Therapy.
That Capitalism is imposed without any regards to human welfare is made evident by countless illustrations. That Governing Institutions such as the IMF and WTO are forcing through agreements such as NAFTA regardless of consequence is made clear, and first, what appeared innocent and benign by colluding Press (Chomsky) is exposed for what it is, a method and successive Instruments of Social Injustice, Inequality and poverty, which ironically goes against the Consumerist Materialist Consumptionist Ideals of Abstract but dishonestly implemented Economic Theory.
A book every good intelligent person to read who are currently taken in with mainstream Media manipulation in favour of our Free Market Masters. ( )

One of the best books of its kind: a collection of informative opinion writing, drawing on research and direct involvement, and concerning the conflict over so-called "globalization." As Naomi Klein points out, the world economy is going "global" where it suits the interests of a narrow subset of humanity, but turning parochial and protectionist whenever it suits the interest of those same people.

The point of Klein's politics is not to be modern, consistent (no one is), or ideologically pure, but to be just.

very interesting book. In this collection of articles, speeches and essays Naomi Klein succeeds to explain to the reader how the different aspects of globalisation relate to each other. I wasn't informed about the anti globalisation movement and I found the book an interesting eye opener. It explains how organisations like the World Trade Organisation, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund work and speaks about the effects of free trade on poor/developing countries.

This is a book to be savoured and referred to every so often, even if just to recharge one's moral batteries. Klein is a fine writer with the gift of conveying much with little, and the ability to put her finger on the social pulse every time.
