Synopsis #2:This landmark collection brings the writings of consumer and workers's rights advocate Ralph Nader together for the first time, creating a remarkable portrait of the activist.
Synopsis #3:'The Ralph Nader Reader features Nader's essential writings from 1956 to the present, and follows the evolution of his political thinking from consumer advocate to presidential candidate, covering ten major areas: the presidency and democracy, the corporatizing of America, corporate welfare, opposing the World Trade Organization, consumer rights, civil justice, citizen action and social change, the practice of law, the information age, and the mass media. The result is a powerhouse of a book, an invaluable resource for a people-oriented vision of democracy that celebrates the power of civic action.' 'Nader's essays expose corporate control, as he gives readers the information and tools to fight for a more just society.'--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
