    Naomi Klein is a Puffin Foundation Writing Fellow and an award-winning journalist and syndicated columnist. Her newest book, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate, lays out why the climate crisis challenges us to abandon the core "free market" ideology of our time, restructure the global economy, and remake our political systems. She is the author of the international bestseller, The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism and No Logo. Her regular columns for The Nation magazine and the Guardian newspaper are syndicated internationally. Her articles have also appeared in Harper's, Rolling Stone, and the New York Times. In 2004, she wrote and co-produced, with director Avi Lewis, the award-winning feature documentary, The Take, about Argentina's cooperatively-run, occupied factories. She holds an honorary Doctor of Civil Laws from the University of King’s College, Nova Scotia.
