Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The hotly debated report from the frontlines of mounting backlash against multinational corporations.

A national bestseller, No Logo took Canadians by storm when it was published last year in hardcover. Equal parts cultural analysis, political manifesto, mall-rat memoir, and journalistic exposé, it is the first book to uncover a betrayal of the central promises of the information age: choice, interactivity, and increased freedom. No Logo takes apart our packaged and branded world and puts the pieces into clear pop-historical and economic perspective. Naomi Klein tracks the resistance and self-determination mounting in the face of our new branded world and explains why some of the most revered brands in the world are finding themselves on the wrong end of a bottle of spray paint, a computer hack, or an international anti-corporate campaign.

About the Author

Naomi Klein is the award-winning author of the acclaimed international bestseller No Logo, and the essay collection Fences and Windows; and an internationally syndicated columnist. With Avi Lewis, she co-created the documentary film The Take.
