Shock Doctrine

A new book by Naomi Klein (from No Logo fame) about the role disasters and other shocks reinforce global capitalism. She even suggests that the orgins of modern capitalism is the result of disasters in the past. There is also a short award winning documentary by the director of Children of Men on her web-site which is excellent. You can info about the book and watch the video on Klein's new eb-site:
