'No Logo' was a book that defined a generation when it was first published in 1999. For its 10th anniversay Naomi Klein has updated this iconic book.

By the time you're twenty-one, you'll have seen or heard a million advertisements. But you won't be happier for it.

This is a book about that much-maligned, much-misunderstood generation coming up behind the slackers, who are being intelligent and active about the world in which they find themselves. It is a world in which all that is 'alternative' is sold, where any innovation or subversion is immediately adopted by un-radical, faceless corporations. But, gradually, tentatively, a new generation is beginning to fight consumerism with its own best weapons; and it is the first skirmishes in this war that this abrasively intelligent book documents brilliantly.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The Das Kapital of the growing anti-corporate movement' Guardian

'A riveting, conscientious piece of journalism and a strident call to arms. Packed with enlightening statistics and extraordinary anecdotal evidence, "No Logo" is fluent, undogmatically alive to its contradictions and omissions and positively seethes with intelligent anger.' Sam Leith, Observer

'A fascinating ride through the history of marketing...Klein brilliantly humanises "No Logo" with fascinating personal stories, her voice firm but never preachy, her argument detailed but never obscure.' Alex O'Connell, The Times

'Naomi Klein brilliantly charts the protean nature of consumer capitalism, how it absorbs radical challenges to its dominance and turns them into consumer products.' Madeleine Bunting, Guardian

'A sharp and very timely book ... A couple of chapters in, your mind is already reeling ... convincing and necessary, clear and fresh, calm but unsparing' Guardian

'A manifesto and a call to arms that sometimes reads like an Orwellian nightmare' Financial Times

“Outdated?”

This book was released in 1999 and it feels like it had been outpaced by the development of modern society. On reflection, it deals well with the the turn of the century marketing mindset, but in 2020 it feels lagging... More
