Naomi Klein has been announced as the winner of the first Warwick Prize for Writing. Canadian journalist Klein's winning book The Shock Doctrine was chosen from a diverse shortlist of six international titles.
The six shortlisted books all offered a different interpretation of this year's theme of complexity and ranged from music criticism and scientific theory to Spanish fiction.
Chair judge China Miéville, award-winning author of fantasy fiction, announced the winner at a ceremony held in the Arts Centre, which was attended by the Vice-Chancellor and Deputy Vice-Chancellor.
