Naomi Klein’s new book

After reading No Logo for research of a paper on culture jamming back at university, I was always somewhat enthralled by the unique writing style of Naomi Klein. There’s an elegant grasp of seriousness and humor that would seem to keep everyone she meets buoyed for the struggles ahead. I had the privilege of hearing her speak at the Loyola Law Center in New Orleans on her new book, “The Shock Doctrine: the rise of disaster capitalism,” which I will likely be using as a resource for a future article on the various forms of reconstructions in this region’s history and their implications for this one.

For everyone’s benefit, I also recorded the talk, which is available on New Orleans Indymedia’s homepage or this permanent link.
