 Tamara Straus: Naomi Klein’s new new left (22. aug. 2000).
“Like many who took to the streets of Seattle, DC or LA, Naomi Klein, author of the anti-corporate bible ‘No Logo’, thinks we’re witnessing the birth of a new radicalism. But she has reservations; she’s not so certain the New Left isn’t just running in place.”

Cultural Logic

 Matthew Sharpe: The Logo as fetish : Marxist themes in Naomi Klein’s No Logo (Volume 6, 2003)
“In the broad sense that Klein is clearly interested in trying to forge a link between theoretical reflexivity and political practice, then, No Logo can be read as a neoMarxist tome. In this essay, though, I want to suggest that Klein’s work is (knowingly or not) deeply Marxian in its argument, in more senses than just this.”

Fight Racism! Fight Imperialism!

 David Yaffe: People against multinational corporations (nr.154, juli-aug. 2000).
“We should be grateful that such a substantial and inspiring book has been written about a new and alternative political movement.”
(På dansk i Solidaritet, se nedenfor).

The Guardian

 Katharine Viner: Hand-to-brand-combat, 1-2 (23. sept. 2000).
“As a teenager, Naomi Klein was a dedicated mall rat, fixated on designer labels. A bare decade later, the author of a life-changing book on anti-corporatism and the new politics, she is at the heart of the protest at the current World Bank summit in Prague. She tells Katharine Viner how everything turned around for her.”

In These Times

 Naomi Klein: Kamikaze capitalists (9. november, 2001).
“What do you call someone who believes so firmly in the promise of salvation through a set of rigid rules that he is willing to risk his own life to spread those rules? A religious fanatic? A holy warrior? How about a U.S. trade negotiator?”

 Jane Slaughter: The next Seattle : Naomi Klein looks into the future of the movement (25. dec. 2000).
“It has been nearly a year since the ‘Battle in Seattle’ gave the globalizers a wake-up call. Many on the left were equally jolted by the commitment and radicalism of the young protesters, who seemed to arrive out of nowhere. But the events of Seattle were foretold by 30-year-old Canadian Naomi Klein. In her 1999 book, ‘No Logo’, Klein explained how corporations’ twin profit strategies – their hyper-marketing and their outsourcing of labor – had created a generation of activists who feel no stake in the system. Klein spoke with ‘In These Times’ from Seattle.”

Internasjonal Sosialisme

 Andreas Ytterstad: En ny klassiker for en ny bevegelse: Om No Logo av Naomi Klein (nr. 6, høsten 2000)
“Denne boka er et must for antikapitalister og sosialister som vil forstå mangfoldet, utviklingen og forklaringen på denne verdensomspennende bevegelsen.”

New Left Review

 Naomi Klein: Reclaiming the commons (nr. 9, maj-juni 2001, s. 81-89).
“The anti-globalization movement is the talk of the financial press. Naomi Klein asks how far it is against globalization and whether it is a movement, arguing it is better described as a broadening series of different struggles against privatization””in every sense.”

 Tom Mertes: On No Logo – After Seattle (nr.4, juli-aug. 2000, s. 168-176).
“Tom Mertes on Naomi Klein, No Logo. Emblems of ownership: from branding hides to clothes, cattle to people? A Canadian reporter’s stinging attack on the new corporate logic behind logo-mania.”

Politiken

 Jes Stein Pedersen: Mærkning af mennesker (1.dec. 2001).
“Det er både en intellektuel og æstetisk nydelse af arbejde sig gennem ‘No Logo’. Hold kæft, hvor er det lang tid siden, man har mødt en intellektuel fra vesten, der har gjort noget, der bare minder om det Naomi Klein præsterer i ‘No Logo’, hvis næsten forførende kapitalismekritik med rette har vakt opsigt.”

 Naomi Klein: Uden logo (nr. 5, oktober 2000, s.10-11).

Socialistisk Arbejderavis

 Lene Junker: No Logo (nr.199, december 2001, s.8).
“Det er inspirerende læsning og man fornemmer klart, at herfra udgår Naomi Kleins håb og tro på, at en anden verden faktisk er mulig.
Begivenhederne de sidste to år har overgået alle forventninger.”

 Bevægelsen er gået fra anti-globalisering til anti-kapitalisme (nr.191, marts 2001, s.9).
“Naomi Klein’s bog No Logo røber hvordan multinationale firmaer kvæler folks liv. Den er blevet en kæmpesucces efter protesterne i Seattle. Socialistisk Arbejderavis’ britiske søsteravis, Socialist Worker, har talt med Naomi Klein.”

Socialist Register 2002

 Naomi Klein: Farewell to “The end of history” : organization and vision in anti-corporate movements (pdf).
“For the past thirty years, a select group of CEOs and world leaders have met during the last week in January on a mountaintop in Switzerland to do what they presumed they were the only ones entitled to do, or capable of doing: determine how the global economy should be governed. We were cheering because it was, in fact, the last week of January, and this wasn’t the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. It was the first annual World Social Forum in Porto Alegre, Brazil. And even though we weren’t CEOs or world leaders, we were still going to spend the week talking about how the global economy should be governed.”

Solidaritet

 David Yaffe: Folket imod de multinationale (nr.1, marts 2001, s.25-29).
“De multinationale firmaer dominerer alle sider af vores liv. De er de drivende kræfter bag globaliseringen, herrer over de imperialistiske magters økonomier, superudbyttere af de underudviklede nationer, skaberere af forskellige livsstile og i stigende grad de bestemmende over kunst- og kulturformer verden over. Hvordan er det sket, og hvordan bekæmpes det? David Yaffe diskuterer en ny og inspirerende bog.”

ZNet

 Walden Bello: No Logo : A brilliant but flawed portrait of contemporary capitalism (April 2001). (source: Focus on the Global Sourth (focusweb.org)
“Naomi Klein paints an unparalleled portrait of the culture of capitalism in the age of globalization. She also provides us with the best analysis yet of the rise of the anti-globalization movement. She has, moreover, written a very insightful work on the dynamics of light manufacturing, the service sector, entertainment, and retail, where marketing has eclipsed manufacturing, where selling the product has given way to establishing the hegemony of the brand in the consumer’s total lifestyle. But the portrait is incomplete and one-dimensional.”
