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. For the past twenty years, Klein has been researching and writing about the forces that gave us Trump and Trumpism — in her books, documentary films, and investigative journalism.
No Is Not Enough reveals, among other things, how Trump’s election was not a peaceful transition but a corporate takeover, one using deliberate shock tactics to generate crises and force through radical policies that will destroy people, the environment, the economy and national security. The book also lays out a concrete plan for how to defeat these strategies, not only with resistance but with a clear alternative program, one bold enough to compete directly with the savage allure of narrow nationalism and rising xenophobia.
“Trump is extreme, but he’s not a Martian,” writes Klein. “On the contrary, he is the logical conclusion to many of the most dangerous trends of the past half century. He is the personification of the merger of humans and corporations — a one-man megabrand, with wife and children as spin-off brands.”
In No Is Not Enough, Klein exposes the malignant forces behind Trump’s rise and puts forward a bold vision for a mass movement to counter increasing militarism, racism, and corporatism in the United States and around the world.
Klein had this to say of Haymarket’s acquisition: “I am thrilled to be publishing in the United States with a feisty independent like Haymarket, which is already embedded in those movements and fully committed to supporting them with the best of radical writing, from Angela Davis to Rebecca Solnit to Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor. I feel right at home.”
Haymarket editor Julie Fain adds: “We are beyond thrilled that Naomi Klein has chosen to publish with Haymarket Books. In these challenging times, her radical, independent voice has never been more critical.”
