The Guardian's Seumas Milne and Naomi Klein discuss the fallout of a decade of global crisis and the prospects for the emerging politics of the future.
Providing a much-needed antidote to a media culture dominated by eager apologists of power, Guardian journalist Seumas Milne's new book, The Revenge of History, assembles over a decade of his searing essays on the disastrous consequences of war and unfettered corporate control. In this collection—described by Naomi Klein (No Logo, The Shock Doctrine) as, "a book with an urgent message"—Milne presents a compelling perspective on the convulsions that have brought us to epochal change. Writing on the conflicts and inequalities that continue to shape the globe—from class to religion, Israel and Palestine to the Arab uprisings, bank bailouts to Occupy and the rise of China to the wave of democratic change in Latin America—Milne comprises a panoramic narrative of social and economic upheaval in the twenty-first century.
Seumas Milne is a columnist and Associate Editor on the Guardian and the paper's former Comment Editor. He was previously the Guardian's Labour Editor and a staff journalist at the Economist. He is the author of The Revenge of History, The Enemy Within and co-author of Beyond the Casino Economy.
Naomi Klein is an award-winning journalist, syndicated columnist and author of the international bestsellers The Shock Doctrine and No Logo. She writes a regular column for The Nation and the Guardian and is a contributing editor at Harper's. Her forthcoming book is about the (r)evolutionary power of climate change.
