Naomi Klein

Naomi Klein (1970) werd in één klap bekend met No Logo (2000), waarin ze de strategie blootlegt van bedrijven die zich primair toeleggen op het verkopen van hun merk in plaats van hun product. In haar grootschalige onderzoek De shockdoctrine (2007) onthulde ze welke macht er werkelijk schuilt achter de meest ingrijpende crises en oorlogen van de afgelopen veertig jaar. In No Time (2014) lag haar focus op het milieu en hoe we onze verantwoordelijkheid moeten nemen om onze manier van leven te veranderen. In Nee is niet genoeg combineert ze haar kennis en inzichten van de afgelopen zeventien jaar en past die toe op de wereld van vandaag.

Samenvatting

Naomi Klein's new international bestseller This Changes Everything is a must-read on our future, one of the defining and most hopeful books of this era

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.

Once a decade, Naomi Klein writes a book that redefines its era. No Logo did so for globalization. The Shock Doctrine changed the way we think about austerity. In This Changes Everything, her most provocative and optimistic book yet, Naomi Klein has upended the debate about the stormy era already upon us, exposing the myths that are clouding the climate debate.

Recensie(s)

This is the best book about climate change in a very long time-in large part because it's about much more. It sets the most important crisis in human history in the context of our other ongoing traumas, reminding us just how much the powers-that-be depend on the power of coal, gas and oil. And that in turn should give us hope, because it means the fight for a just world is the same as the fight for a livable one -- Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature and co-founder of 350.org An intellectual hero of many in the alter-globalization protests as well as the Occupy movement. . . . Klein is ready for battle and is not afraid to own her politics * Los Angeles Review of Books * Meticulously researched and briskly rational in tone, [it] is one of the basic texts of the modern era... an essential purchase in that it tells you precisely what you need to know to discuss the climate dilemma intelligently... This Changes Everything is basic reading and no one will take you seriously until you've read every single page * Toronto Star * Has the potential to be the definitive account of our current moment... Klein's great gifts have always been synthesizing huge amounts of information and drawing connections between seemingly disparate issues; on those points, This Changes Everything is no different * Globe and Mail * The manifesto that the climate movement - and the planet - needs right now... For those with whom her message does resonate - and they are likely to be legion - her book could help catalyze the kind of mass movement she argues the world needs now * San Francisco Gate * Naomi Klein is a genius. She has done for politics what Jared Diamond did for the study of human history. She skillfully blends politics, economics and history and distills out simple and powerful truths with universal applicability -- Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Today @NaomiAKlein's new book #ThisChangesEverything is out now - I'm reading it - it's great -- Russell Brand [Her] words and knowledge run deep, inspiring change and the need for immediate action -- Charlize Theron Klein has, with this book, thoroughly and completely debunked everything promoted under the banner of conservatism today - and she has done so with a work that's more powerful than a stack of C4. This Changes Everything deserves to be viewed not as one of the greatest nonfiction works of the 2010s, but as one of the greatest nonfiction works of all-time. ... This book will expand and intensify the worldwide climate-justice movement, which is why the rhetorical attacks on Klein will become ever more aggressive. It will politically galvanize the young and the vulnerable, who have so much to lose due to the climate crisis. It will create climate leaders across this warming globe. This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate is not just a book, not just a moment, not just a movement. It is a weapon of justice. It is a path of survival * Washington Monthly * An energetic exploration of issues surrounding climate change vociferously advocates immediate, radical reforms... The distinctiveness of the book resides... in its immersive reporting (on Blockadia eco-movements and futuristic geoengineering proposals) and in Klein's sheer outspokenness * New Yorker * Gripping and dramatic . . . [Klein] writes of a decisive battle for the fate of the earth in which we either take back control of the planet from the capitalists who are destroying it or watch it all burn * Rolling Stone * Klein is one of the left's most influential figures and a prominent climate champion. . . . [She] is a gifted writer and there is little doubt about the problem she identifies * Financial Times * Powerfully and uncompromisingly written, the impassioned polemic we have come to expect from Klein, mixing first-hand accounts of events around the world and withering political analysis . . . Her stirring vision is nothing less than a political, economic, social, cultural and moral make-over of the human world * New Scientist * The proposition that the world's political and economic institutions are preventing us from meeting the lethal challenge of global warming is hardly novel. But Naomi Klein in her new book articulates the case as forcefully and comprehensively as anyone has yet managed * Independent * Her task is to take a potential catastrophe of unimaginable reach and to be calm and welcoming, drawing new people in. She does vast amounts of travel and research and thinking, then crafts all of it to the scale of her own voice: the voice of a pleasant, funny, unthreatening-looking woman * Guardian * This may be the first truly honest book ever written about climate change * Time * The book has an uplifting message: that humans have changed before, and can change again. It poses a gutsy challenge to those who are vaguely hoping that the whole issue will go away, or that some new technology will save us * Sunday Times * Savages the idea that we will be saved by new technologies or by an incremental shift away from fossil fuels... Her solution requires a radical reconfiguration of our economic system * New York Times * A book of such ambition and consequence it is almost unreviewable ... The most momentous and contentious environmental book since Silent Spring * New York Times Book Review * Naomi Klein applies her fine, fierce, and meticulous mind to the greatest, most urgent questions of our times. . . I count her among the most inspirational political thinkers in the world today -- Arundhati Roy, author of The God of Small Things and Capitalism: A Ghost Story Captured the collective sense of anger and awakening ... [a] frightening look at climate change and capitalism -- Matt Haig * Observer, Books of the Year * [T]he problems - climate change, plus everything that is changing as a result, plus the increasing toxicity of the planet - can no longer be denied. This is a conversation that needs to happen on a large scale, and on a local scale, and on a personal scale, very soon -- Margaret Atwood * Guardian, Books of the Year * It's no exaggeration to say This Changes Everything is the most important book I've read all year - perhaps in a decade. Klein sets out the scientific case for urgent action on climate change and argues passionately that our only hope of combating its effects is a revolution in our entire economic system. Crucially, she manages to leave the reader with a degree of optimism -- Stephanie Merritt * Observer, Books of the Year * I have devoured Naomi Klein's This Changes Everything, the book the world has been waiting for. I urge everyone to read it (especially politicians). It is her most prescient book yet and is a much-needed call to arms as time runs out on climate change -- Cornelia Parker * Observer, Books of the Year * Her task is to take a potential catastrophe of unimaginable reach and to be calm and welcoming, drawing new people in. She does vast amounts of travel and research and thinking, then crafts all of it to the scale of her own voice: the voice of a pleasant, funny, unthreatening-looking woman * Guardian * Savages the idea that we will be saved by new technologies or by an incremental shift away from fossil fuels... Her solution requires a radical reconfiguration of our economic system * New York Times * Without a doubt one of the most important books of the decade -- Amitav Ghosh Klein is a brave and passionate writer who always deserves to be heard, and this is a powerful and urgent book -- John Gray * Observer * Will be one of the most influential books of our time -- Owen Jones

    Geschreven bij This Changes Everything

    Voor wie al goed vertrouwd is met de thematiek van klimaatverandering, globalisering en kapitalisme, is Kleins nieuwste boek niet zozeer een eyeopener, maar wel een fikse herinnering dat er echt geen tijd meer te verliezen is. Door haar heldere schrijfstijl en gebruik van concrete voorbeelden, slaagt ze er toch in je opnieuw aan het denken te zetten.

    Naomi Klein weet haar visie weer op sublieme manier te verwoorden.
    Het gevaar van het hedendaagse kapitalisme speelt voor iedereen en zou ook door iedereen gehoord moeten worden.

    De beangstigende klimaatveranderingen hangen samen met alle andere zaken zoals democratie en ongelijkheid waar veel mensen zich zorgen over maken. Maar waar we ook wat aan kunnen doen!
