Donald Trumpâs takeover of the White House is aÂ dangerous escalation in a world of cascading crises.Â His reckless agendaâincluding a corporate coup inÂ government, aggressive scapegoating andÂ warmongering, and sweeping aside climate science toÂ set off a fossil fuel frenzyâwill generate waves ofÂ disasters and shocks to the economy, national security,Â and the environment.
Acclaimed journalist, activist, and bestselling authorÂ Naomi Klein has spent two decades studying politicalÂ shocks, climate change, and âbrand bullies.â From thisÂ unique perspective, she argues that Trump is not anÂ aberration but a logical extension of the worst, mostÂ dangerous trends of the past half-centuryâthe veryÂ conditions that have unleashed a rising tide of whiteÂ nationalism the world over. It is not enough, she tells us,Â to merely resist, to say âno.â Our historical momentÂ demands more: a credible and inspiring âyes,â a roadmapÂ to reclaiming the populist ground from those whoÂ would divide usâone that sets a bold course for winningÂ the fair and caring world we want and need.
This timely, urgent book from one of our mostÂ influential thinkers offers a bracing positive shock of itsÂ own, helping us understand just how we got here, andÂ how we can, collectively, come together and heal.
