Waterstones Exclusive: Jeremy Corbyn and the Power of “Yes”

“Clearly young people are hungry for a different kind of politics, one that feels more authentic – and not because it is marketed that way, but because it actually is.” Exclusive to Waterstones, the movement-defining voice of Naomi Klein delivers her analysis of June’s General Election, just as her latest title No is Not Enough: Defeating the New Shock Politics is published in the UK. Like her eternal No Logo, No Is Not Enough is a whip-smart assessment of the status quo and a polemic for seismic change.

Who Rules the World? Craig Taylor Dives into Noam Chomsky's Backlist

'The events of Trump’s presidency are tethered to the past. Chomsky is there, crooking his finger: Go back. Follow the path.' A founding father of analytic philosophy and a titan of contemporary political debate, Noam Chomsky has been crucial in shaping a generation’s thinking. To mark the paperback release of Who Rules the World?, Chomsky’s definitive guide to the origins of power, Craig Taylor, author of Londoners, delves into Chomsky’s backlist to find an author who remains angrily determined in the pursuit of truth.
