I am just a few pages into Hilary Wainwright’s book but I am already struggling with her rather dated left-right political metaphors. I felt the same about Namoi Klein’s “Big Business Bad, Big State Good” arguments in her new book about Disaster Capitalism. In particular her concepts of what happened in Tiananmen Square and even the Falklands war seem a bit up-side-down… not to mention the results of the tsunami in Sri Lanka. Shock Doctrine is being widely reported in the papers at the moment – including an videos, interviews and extracts published in the Guardian. Glad to see that Jonathan Fenby calls her on her analysis of Tiananmen Square. Very interesting.
