Fences and Windows: An Activist Journal, from Seattle to September 11thby Naomi Klein
Synopses & Reviews
Naomi Kleins No Logo is an international bestselling phenomenon. Winner of Le Prix Mediations (France), and of the National Business Book Award (Canada) it has been translated into 21 languages and published in 25 countries.
Named one of Ms Magazines Women of Year in 2001, and declared by the Times (London) to be “probably the most influential person under the age of 35 in the world,” in Fences and Windows, Naomi Klein offers a birds-eye view of the life of an activist and the development of the “anti-globalization” movement from the Seattle World Trade Organization protests in 1999 through September 11, 2001. Bringing together columns, speeches, essays, and reportage, Klein once again provides provocative arguments on a broad range of issues. Whether she is discussing the privatization of water; genetically modified food; “free trade;” or the development of the movement itself and its future post 9/11, Naomi Klein is one of the most thoughtful and brilliant activists and thinkers for a new generation.
"While Klein offers snapshots of success stories involving Nike, Starbucks and other corporate monoliths, she wisely does not suggest any easy solutions to this complex mesh of problems. Despite post-September 11 talk to the contrary, these dispatches indicate that the movement is far from over." Publishers Weekly
