No Logo: Taking Aim at the Brand Bullies

No Logo

Naomi Klein

Why are some of the most revered brands in the world finding themselves on the wrong end of a bottle of spray paint or the targets of computer hacks and anti-corporate campaigns? What does this mean to multinational marketing and global interdependence?

No Logo is a compelling combination of comprehensive reporting and Klein’s own provocative, humorous personal anecdotes. Klein tracks the reasons behind the rise of anti-corporate activism and explains just why this emerging global movement is a force to be reckoned with.

In this eye-opening chronicle, Klein leads us through the stores of multinational corporations to sweatshop factories in Indonesia and the Philippines. In No Logo, Klein plots the story of rebellion in the face of what she calls “our branded world,” placing it in economic and pop-historical perspective.
