No Is Not Enough

“This is how we got to this surreal political moment. It is also an attempt to predict how, under cover of shocks and crises, it could get a lot worse. And it’s a plan for how, we might just be able to flip the script and arrive at a radically better future.”

About the Book

Description

The election of Donald Trump is a dangerous escalation in a world of cascading crises­. Trump’s vision—a radical deregulation of the U.S. economy in the interest of corporations, an all-out war on “radical Islamic terrorism,” and sweeping aside climate science to unleash a domestic fossil fuel frenzy—will generate wave after wave of crises and shocks, to the economy, to national security, to the environment.

 

In No Is Not Enough, Naomi Klein explains that Trump, extreme as he is, is not an aberration but a logical extension of the worst and most dangerous trends of the past half-century. In exposing the malignant forces behind Trump’s rise, she puts forward a bold vision for a mass movement to counter rising militarism, nationalism, and corporatism in the US and around the world.

 

Donald Trump’s takeover of the White House is a dangerous escalation in a world of cascading crises. His reckless agenda—including a corporate coup in government, aggressive scapegoating and warmongering, and sweeping aside climate science to set off a fossil fuel frenzy—will generate waves of disasters and shocks to the economy, national security, and the environment.

Naomi Klein has spent two decades studying political shocks, climate change, and “brand bullies.” From this unique perspective, she argues that Trump is not an aberration but a logical extension of the worst, most dangerous trends of the past half-century—the very conditions that have unleashed a rising tide of white nationalism the world over. It is not enough, she tells us, to merely resist, to say “no.” Our historical moment demands more: a credible and inspiring “yes,” a roadmap to reclaiming the populist ground from those who would divide us—one that sets a bold course for winning the fair and caring world we want and need.

 

In No Is Not Enough, Naomi Klein helps us understand just how we got here, and how we can, collectively, come together. In exposing the malignant forces behind Trump’s rise, she puts forward a bold vision for a mass movement to counter rising militarism, nationalism, and corporatism in the US and around the world.

Cornel West

“Naomi Klein is one of the few revolutionary public intellectuals of great integrity and vision.”

Owen Jones

“Ceaselessly illuminating, daring, and indispensable. As accessible as it is brilliant . . . essential.”

Reviews

Publishers Weekly

“A blueprint for combating Trumpism and the corporatist policies of his predecessors that made his rise possible. With a genuine sense of hope, Naomi Klein illuminates paths to collectively forge an ecologically sound, anticapitalist order.”

—Starred Review

Publishers Weekly

“This year’s most immediately useful political book.”

—Best Books of 2017

The Globe and Mail

“[A]nyone struggling for a place to even start making sense of Trump, and Trumpism, will find a book abounding in insight . . . . Without lapsing into corny cheeriness or the puffed-up cant of centrist political cliché (‘Love Trumps Hate!’), Naomi Klein holds out a cautious hope for the despairing age: an honest, prescriptive belief that people can unite in their opposition to Trumpism to build a better world.”

The Guardian

“Klein’s background and expertise allow her to pull together the disparate threads of what it would be misleading to call ‘Trumpism’, if only because of the unwarranted suggestion of system and control. She insists, rightly in my view, that there is a need to promote a positive alternative social vision, and that ostensibly ‘utopian’ aims and proposals are a way to avoid being caught in a politics that is merely reactive or timidly reformist.”

—Hari Kunzru

The Guardian

“In No Is Not Enough, Naomi Klein anatomizes the roots of Trump in the already dystopian world of corporate-ruled America and predicts the ‘end run around democracy’. A clear and readable guide to action, if it is action you are contemplating.”

—Paul Mason

Jacobin

“The desire to radically challenge capitalism is widespread and growing. Klein’s new book is an important contribution to that project.”
