Naomi Klein’s anti-corporate manifesto is slightly outdated–it came out even before Seattle, and she had to add an afterword after 9/11–but her arguments about the ever-encroaching branding on our lives are still incisive, and if anything, corporations have even more power over us than they did in the late nineties. The first section, “No Space,” is especially interesting, and so is her take on possible alternatives to the corporation-sponsored “globalization.” Klein’s website.
