Description

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein, read by Katherine Fenton.

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.  

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.

An absolute must-read for critics of capitalism

I had heard a lot of off-hand references to the Shock Doctrine from many thinkers critical of modern capitalism, and now I see why. This book is an amazingly comprehensive account of the formation of the disaster capitalism operating behind the scenes of all of today's most insidious neoliberal global forces. The book's account ends around 2006, and by the end, your only wish is that it would keep going to provide that same clarity to the years encompassing the great recession and the subsequent set of reactionary right-wing turns in governments around the world. If you want a better sense of how and when democracy and capitalism come into conflict with each other, I can't recommend a better entry point than The Shock Doctrine.
