Praise

“The forces of disaster capitalism are increasingly on the defensive, but their attacks on the global commons have expanded in the years since I wrote The Shock Doctrine. I am very grateful that Antony Loewenstein has brought his meticulous reporting to this subject, and the result is a keenly observed and timely investigation into rampant resource plunder, privatized detention centers, and an array of other forms of corporate rapacity on four continents. This book will serve as a potent weapon for shock resistors around the world.”
—Naomi Klein, author of This Changes Everything and The Shock Doctrine

“Chilling study, based on careful and courageous reporting, and illuminated with perceptive analysis, helps us understand all too well the saying that man is a wolf to man.”
—Noam Chomsky

“A journey into a world of mutated economics and corrupt politics that we ignore at our peril.”
—John Pilger

“A devastating, incisive follow-up to Naomi Klein’s The Shock Doctrine.”
—Jeremy Scahill

“Our economic system now depends upon transforming emergency relief, incarceration and the processing of asylum seekers into profits … [an] unnerving and convincing book.”
—Owen Hatherley, Guardian

“Antony Loewenstein offers us a superb description of the diminishing power of national governments and international organisations to exercise power in the modern world.”
—Robert J. Burrowes, Lahore Times
