This is perhaps the single most important book of the 21st Century so far. After reading this, all of the mess the Bush Administration has caused at home and in the world snaps into a sharper focus. The concept is a new form of economics that uses theories of shock therapy to help Neo-Conservative interests avoid pesky democracy, exploit disasters, and create free market states that continually fail. For example, Chile, Post-Cold War Russia, Iraq, New Orleans, etc. This book is a must!
