No space, no choice, no jobs, no logo : taking aim at the brand bullies by Naomi Klein( Book )
243 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in 21 languages and held by 4,145 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 shock doctrine : the rise of disaster capitalism by Naomi Klein( Book )
46 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 3,296 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
This changes everything : capitalism vs. the climate by Naomi Klein( Book )
58 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 2,819 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"--

64 editions published between 1984 and 2013 in 16 languages and held by 1,119 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

This changes everything ( visu )
10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 282 libraries worldwide
"Filmed over 211 shoot days in nine countries and five continents over four years, This Changes Everything is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change. Inspired by Naomi Klein's international non-fiction bestseller This Changes Everything, the film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana's Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond. Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Klein's narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there. Throughout the film, Klein builds to her most controversial and exciting idea: that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better. The extraordinary detail and richness of the cinematography in This Changes Everything provides an epic canvas for this exploration of the greatest challenge of our time. Unlike many films about the climate crisis, this is not a film that tries to scare the audience into action: it aims to empower. Provocative, compelling, and accessible to even the most climate-fatigued viewers, This Changes Everything will leave you refreshed and inspired, reflecting on the ties between us, the kind of lives we really want, and why the climate crisis is at the centre of it all. Will this film change everything? Absolutely not. But you could, by answering its call to action."--Publisher's website
A line in the tar sands : struggles for environmental justice by Stephen D'Arcy( Book )
4 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 201 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

Die Schock-Strategie : der Aufstieg des Katastrophen-Kapitalismus by Naomi Klein( Book )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in German and Undetermined and held by 126 libraries worldwide
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. Existenzen werden durch den Ausverkauf an westliche Konzerne vernichtet, es herrscht WildWestKapitalismus der reinsten Sorte. Naomi Klein erzählt die Geschichte einer der wirkmächtigsten Ideologien unserer Zeit, Milton Friedmans ökonomischer Doktrin des freien Marktes. Sie zeigt, wie deren Siegeszug in den letzten dreißig Jahren auf extremer Gewalt und auf Katastrophen beruht, um die Mechanismen der ungezügelten Marktwirtschaft rund um die Welt von Lateinamerika über Osteuropa und Russland bis nach Südafrika und in den Irak durchzusetzen

French economist Thomas Piketty and Canadian activist Naomi Klein are intellectual super stars who conquer the world with their ideas. They inspire and mobilize millions of people all over the globe. Not only by pinpointing the big problems and their solutions, but also by talking to politicians, meeting with social movements, and doing hundreds of TV interviews that are then shared on a massive scale via social media. With his book Capital in the Twenty-First Century, Piketty caused a stir around the globe. Drawing on historical research, he demonstrates that wealth inequality has risen sharply since the 1980s. Klein sees the imminent climate change as a call-to-action to shape a new economic world order. Her new book This Changes Everything is a hit around the world. Why are we so hungry for these kinds of stories? While politicians often seem powerless, these intellectual stars revive our hope that we are capable of tackling the big problems. But what is their impact on reality? Can Piketty and Klein set the world in motion where governments are stuck? This program joined Klein and Piketty on tour to have a closer look at new-style politics
