Naomi Klein wins the first Warwick Prize

UC alumna Naomi Klein is the first winner of the Warwick Prize for Writing, for her book The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism. This new £50,000 prize will be given every two years, focusing on a different theme each time; this year’s theme was “complexity,” and the 2011 theme will be “colour”. The prize is given by the University of Warwick, which I visited, along with nearby Warwick Castle, a few years ago.
