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.

Thrilling and revelatory, "The Shock Doctrine" cracks open the secret history of our era. 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.

Impassioned, hugely informative, wonderfully controversial, and scary as hell - John le Carre

Packed with thinking dynamite ... a book to be read everywhere - John Berger

If you read only one non-fiction book this year, make it this one - Metro

There are few books that really help us understand the present. The Shock Doctrine is one of those books - Guardian

Lucid, calm, impeccably researched, gorgeously readable -Observer

A brilliant, brave and terrifying book - Arundhati Roy

Powerful ... epic ... dramatic - Daily Telegraph

A brilliant book written with a perfectly distilled anger, channelled through hard fact. She has indeed surpassed No Logo - Independent

Excoriating ... passionate and informed ... Her prose packs a punch - Scotsman

Naomi Klein is an award-winning journalist, author and filmmaker. The Shock Doctrine has been translated into more than twenty languages. It was a hardback bestseller in Canada, the United States, Germany, Italy, Spain and Sweden, nominated for multiple awards including the Los Angeles Times Book Award and the New York Public Library Bernstein Award for Journalism. Naomi Klein writes an internationally syndicated column for The Guardian and The Nation and reported from Iraq for Harper's magazine.

In 2004, she released The Take, a feature documentary about Argentina's occupied factories, co-produced with director Avi Lewis. She is a former Miliband Fellow at the London School of Economics and holds an honorary Doctor of Civil Laws from the University of King's College, Nova Scotia. Her first book was the international bestseller No Logo: Taking Aim at the Brand Bullies, called "a movement bible" by The New York Times.
