Description

Forget everything you think you know about global warming. It's not about carbon - it's about capitalism. The good news is that we can seize this crisis to transform our failed economic system and build something radically better. In her most provocative book yet, Naomi Klein, author of the global bestsellers The Shock Doctrine and No Logo, exposes the myths that are clouding climate debate. You have been told the market will save us, when in fact the addiction to profit and growth is digging us in deeper every day. You 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. You have also been told that humanity is too greedy and selfish to rise to this challenge. In fact, all around the world, the fight back is already succeeding in ways both surprising and inspiring. It's about changing the world, before the world changes so drastically that no one is safe. Either we leap - or we sink. This Changes Everything is a book that will redefine our era.show more

About Naomi Klein

Born in Montreal in 1970, Naomi Klein is an award-winning journalist and author of the international bestseller No Logo, which was shortlisted for the Guardian first book award. Translated into twenty-five languages, No Logo was called "a movement bible" and placed Naomi Klein at the vanguard of a new wave of considering globalisation and corporations. In Blank is Beautiful, Klein will once again revolutionize our way of thinking. Naomi Klein writes an internationally syndicated column for the Guardian and her articles appear in numerous publications, including The Nation, The New Statesman, Newsweek International, the New York Times and the Village Voice. A collection of her work, titled Fences and Windows: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the Globalization Debate, was published in October 2002. For the past six years, Klein has travelled throughout North America, Asia, Latin America and Europe, tracking the rise of anticorporate activism. She is a frequent media commentator and university guest lecturer and was a Miliband Fellow at the London School of Economics. Her latest book is The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism (Penguin, 2007).show more

Review Text

"Clever pendelt sie zwischen hohem Ton, maximalistischer Rhetorik und pragmatischen Vorschlägen hin und her." Jörg Häntzschel, Süddeutsche Zeitung, 20.9.2014 "Ein ambitioniertes und konsequentes Buch [ ] Kleins optimistischstes Buch [ ] das bedeutendste und provokanteste Buch seit Silent Spring ." Rob Nixon, The New York Times Book Review, 6.11.2014 "Naomi Kleins scharfsinnige Analyse ist ein zwingendes Argument dafür, dass wir endlich alle aufwachen und uns diesem Thema stellen müssen." The Chicago Tribune "Das Manifest der Klimabewegung. Es hat die Kraft, die dringend notwendigen Massen zu mobilisieren, um unseren Planeten zu retten." San Francisco Chronicle "Ihr bislang persönlichstes und hoffnungsvollstes Buch." John Powers, Vogue "Naomi Klein hat ein Buch geschrieben, das den Finger in die Wunde legt. Wer beim Klimawandel mitreden will, wird um ihr Buch nicht herumkommen." Bernhard Pötter, taz, 1.11.2014show more
