Fences and Windows

Dispatches from the Front Lines of the Globalization Debate

Naomi Klein

Picador

In Fences and Windows, Klein, author of the internationally bestselling No Logo, gives readers a backstage pass to the global revolt against corporate power—from the Seattle World Trade Organization protests in 1999 through the crackdown on dissent post-September 11th, 2001.

Bringing together columns, speeches, essays and front-line reportage, Klein builds a case that globalization has not been about taking barriers down, but about putting new fences up—turning borders into militarized zones, governments into gated communities, and putting virtually all of the planet's wealth under patent. In the face of these fences, Klein argues, a global network of activists has launched a liberation movement, one intent on opening up windows, spaces for non-corporate culture, independent media, and most of all, for meaningful democracy. This important collection reminds us how and why, as The New York Times noted, "Ms. Klein incarnates [her] generation's invention of the North American left."
