Naomi Klein is an award-winning journalist, syndicated columnist, and author. Her most recent book, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate (2014), advances the theory that the climate crisis challenges us to abandon the core “free market” ideology of our time, restructure the global economy, and remake our political systems. Her previous works include international bestsellers The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism (2007) and No Logo: Taking Aim at the Brand Bullies (1999). Klein is a contributing editor for Harper’s Magazine, reporter for Rolling Stone and writes a syndicated column for The Nation and The Guardian. In 2004, her reporting from Iraq for Harper’s won the James Aronson Award for Social Justice Journalism. In 2014 she received the International Studies Association’s IPE Outstanding Activist-Scholar award, and in 2015 she received The Izzy Award honoring outstanding achievement in independent journalism and media. She holds an honorary Doctor of Civil Laws from the University of King’s College, Nova Scotia.
