About the Book

Description

No Logo: Taking Aim at the Brand Bullies was first published in December, 1999 by Knopf Canada and subsequently by Holt in the US and Harper Collins in the UK in 2000. It was an international bestseller and proclaimed “a movement bible” by The New York Times. It has been published in over 20 languages with over a million copies in print, and is a staple of the university course list, taught in hundreds of classes around the world. In 2009, a Tenth Anniversary edition was published with a new introduction.  In the last twenty years, No Logo has become a standard of political, economic and social critical analysis.

 

Equal parts cultural analysis, political manifesto, memoir, and journalistic exposé, No Logo was the first book to put the new grassroots resistance to corporate manipulation into clear perspective.  It vividly documents the invasive economic practices and damaging social effects of the ruthless corporatism that characterizes many of our powerful institutions. It tells a story of rebellious rage and self-determination in the face of our branded world, calling for a more just, sustainable economic model and a new kind of proactive internationalism.  Naomi Klein’s historical analysis of the world we lived in the 1990s proves not only astonishingly prescient but more vital than ever.

In 2011, Time magazine named it as one of the Top 100 non-fiction books published since 1923. A tenth anniversary edition of No Logo was published worldwide in 2009. The Literary Review of Canada has named it one of the hundred most important Canadian books ever published.  It also won the 2001 National Business Book Award and the 2001 French Prix Médiations. In 2017, for their 200th anniversary, UK publisher Harper Collins listed it as one of their top 200 books published in the 200 year history.  Citing it as an international bestseller and one of the world’s most influential books about the alter-globalization movement.

Reviews

Now Magazine

“Fiercely committed, totally brainy and one of our most stellar exports, Naomi Klein has done more to bring leftist politics to a new generation than any other writer in the world.”

The Guardian

“An intelligently written and superbly reported account of a culture that has moved from selling products to hawking brands . . . A couple of chapters in, your mind is already reeling. Klein can write: favouring informality and crispness over jargon . . . convincing and necessary, clear and fresh, calm but unsparing.”

The Observer

“A riveting conscientious piece of journalism and a call to arms. Packed with enlightening statistics and extraordinary anecdotal evidence, No Logo is fluent, undogmatically alive to the contradictions and omissions, and positively seethes with intelligent anger.”

The Village Voice

“Nothing short of a complete, user-friendly handbook on the negative effects that ’90s uberbrand marketing has had on culture, work and consumer choice . . . . No Logo may itself be one of the anticorporate movement’s best hopes yet.”

The Guardian

No Logo has been a word-of-mouth sensation, giving voice to a generation of people under thirty who have never related to politics until now.  The band Radiohead were so inspired by No Logo that they have banned corporate advertising from their British tour, deeming all venues ‘logo free’ . . . . Naomi Klein might just be helping to reinvent politics for a new generation.”

The Times Literary Supplement (London)

“A brilliant account of how Nike, Starbucks, McDonald’s, etc, branded the industrialized world, and how the most exciting strand of radical politics is now bound up with resisting . . . . Fantastic and inspiring.”

The Times

“Klein brilliantly humanises No Logo with fascinating personal stories, her voice firm but never preachy, her argument detailed but never obscure.”

The Boston Globe

No Logo is an attractive sprawl of a book describing a vast confederacy of activist groups with a common interest in reining in the power of lawyering, marketing, and advertising to manipulate our desires.”

The New York Times

“A movement bible”

The Globe and Mail

Naomi Klein’s trenchant new book . . . is the very essence of cool.”
