Toronto: (April 5, 2017) - Knopf Canada, an imprint of Penguin Random House Canada, is very pleased to announce the publication of a new book from Naomi Klein as part of a worldwide publishing event on June 13, 2017. In No Is Not Enough: Resisting Trump’s Shock Politics and Winning the World We Need, one of the world’s most important activists turns her lens on the occupant of the most powerful office in the world to give us a tool kit for understanding and resisting Trump’s shock politics.
Louise Dennys, Executive Publisher and Executive Vice President of Penguin Random House Canada, and Naomi Klein’s longtime editor, says: “Since the election of Donald Trump, Naomi has been constantly asked for her perspective on the events happening in real time around us—and she indeed has a unique perspective to offer based on two decades of studying and writing about the dark underbelly of political shock tactics that have been used around the world (The Shock Doctrine), the power of megabrands (No Logo) and the urgency of climate change (This Changes Everything). We at Penguin Random House Canada are hugely proud to be publishing No Is Not Enough—a beacon from our most celebrated and beloved public thinker.”
The election of Donald Trump has produced a bewildering and frightening escalation in a world of cascading crises. The Trump Administration’s vision–the deconstruction of the welfare and regulatory state, the unleashing of a fossil fuel frenzy which requires the sweeping aside of climate science and an all-out attack on vulnerable communities under the guise of a war on crime and terrorism—has the potential to generate wave after wave of crises and shocks around the world, to the economy, to national security, to the environment, that will affect us all.
Naomi Klein exposes the forces behind Trump’s success and explains why he is not an aberration but the product of our time–Reality TV branding, celebrity obsession and CEO-worship, Vegas and Guantanamo, fake news and vulture bankers all rolled into one. She offers a clear-eyed perspective on how to break the spell of Trump’s shock tactics and counter the rising chaos and divisiveness at home and abroad, proposing a bold plan of action to defeat these strategies and help build a fairer society and more sustainable world.
No Is Not Enough will be published simultaneously worldwide in English on June 13, 2017; in the UK by Allen Lane and in the US by independent nonprofit publisher Haymarket Books.
NAOMI KLEIN is an award-winning journalist, syndicated columnist, and author of the international bestsellers No Logo, The Shock Doctrine, and most recently This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate. In 2017 she joined The Intercept as Senior Correspondent. In 2016 she was awarded the Sydney Peace Prize, for “exposing the structural causes and responsibility for the climate crisis, for inspiring us to stand up locally, nationally and internationally to demand a new agenda for sharing the planet that respects human rights and equality, and for reminding us of the power of authentic democracy to achieve transformative change and justice.” [Jury Prize citation]
