Reviews

"Bakan does such a good job of creating awareness that [The Corporation] can't help but be a call to action."
-- USA Today
"The corporation, according to Joel Bakan, is the monster that can swallow civilization -- greedy, exploitive, and unstoppable. We are all its potential victims, which is why we must all understand how the corporate form makes it so difficult to control its abuses."
-- Alan M. Dershowitz, Felix
"This incisive study should be read carefully and pondered. And it should be a stimulus to constructive action."
-- Noam Chomsky, Ph.D., professor of linguistics, MIT, and author of 9-11
