A road map to resistance in the Trump era from internationally acclaimed activist and bestselling author Naomi Klein.
"This book is a toolkit to help understand how we arrived at this surreal political moment, how to keep it from getting a lot worse, and how, if we keep our heads, we can flip the script and seize the opportunity to make things a whole lot better in a time of urgent need. A toolkit for shock-resistance."—Naomi Klein, from the Preface
The election of Donald Trump is a dangerous escalation in a world of cascading crises. Trump's visiona 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 frenzywill 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.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Naomi K. is a thorough researcher and original in her conclusions. Her other books are just as excellent. I 100% recommend her!
Ms. Klein is a breath of fresh air in combating the simple minded populism that dominates our media.
We all have a choice to make...had some interesting views and opinions...
Excellent antidote to the despair that sets in watching an administration gut our environmental protections, and try to dismantle the social commons. Highly recommend...engaging, positive take on co-creating a better world for all.
I have been feeling like a hamster on a wheel. Like sociopolitical action is an exercise in futility. This book offers healthy and even soothing perspective and hope, which are no small things given we all need to be active participants in this world.
This book showed me a new way to think about our current world and economy, and a framework for moving toward a new world and economy without profit as the only goal.
Do not waste your money on this book!
