    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. 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.

    We seem to have given up on any serious effort to prevent catastrophic climate change. Exposing the work of ideologues on the right who know the challenge this poses to the free market all too well, Naomi Klein also challenges the failing strategies of environmental groups. It's time to stop running from the full implications of the crisis and begin to embrace them.

    Trump, as extreme as he is, is less an aberration than a logical conclusion - a pastiche of pretty much all the worst and most dangerous trends of the past half century. A one-man megabrand, with wife and children as spin-off brands... Remember when it all seemed to be getting better? Before Trump happened? Naomi Klein, internationally acclaimed journalist, activist and best-selling author, shows us how we got to this surreal and dangerous place, how to stop it getting a lot worse, and how, if we keep our heads, we can make things better.

     No Logo 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 sect that will surely alter the course of the 21st century. This is an infuriating, inspiring, and altogether pioneering work of cultural criticism that investigates money, marketing and the anticorporate movement.

    Naomi Klein gibt Antworten auf Donald Trump. Wie konnte es dazu kommen, dass Donald Trump Präsident der USA wurde? Der mit "alternativen Fakten" gegen Einwanderer, gegen Frauen, gegen Wissenschaft, gegen Pressefreiheit hetzt und seine populistische Agenda schamlos durchsetzt. Überzeugend zeigt Naomi Klein, dass Trump weder aus dem Nichts aufgetaucht ist noch ein politischer Unfall ist. Seine Wahl ist die konsequente Fortsetzung einer Entwicklung, die schon vor Jahren begann. Trump ist Agent eines ungezügelten Kapitalismus, zunehmender Ungleichheit, zunehmenden Rassismus und Protektionismus.
