In this groundbreaking alternative history of the most dominant ideology of our time, Milton Friedman’s free-market economic revolution, Naomi Klein challenges the popular myth of this movement’s peaceful global victory. From Chile in 1973 to Iraq today, Klein shows how Freidman and his followers have repeatedly exploited crises and shock to implement their policies. As John Gray wrote inThe Guardian,“There are very few books that really help us understand the present.The Shock Doctrineis one of those books.”
