About the Author
Born in Connecticut in 1934, RALPH NADER has spent his lifetime challenging corporations and government agencies to be more accountable to the public. His 1965 book Unsafe at Any Speed permanently altered the course of a reckless U.S. automobile industry and made Nader a household name. His lobbying and writing on the food industry helped to ensure that the food we buy is required to pass strict guidelines before reaching the consumer. One of Nader's greatest achievements was his successful lobbying for a 1974 amendment to the Freedom of Information Act, which gave increased public access to government documents. Over the years he has co-founded the public interest groups Public Citizen, Critical Mass, Commercial Alert, and the Center for the Study of Responsive Law. His 2000 presidential campaign on the Green Party ticket served to broaden the scope of debate on the nation's priorities. Named by the Atlantic as one of the hundred most influential figures in American history, Nader continues to be a relentless advocate for grassroots activism and democratic change. He lives in Washington, D.C.
"This tale has a moral substance and political content that is quite relevant for our time!" --Cornel West "A breakthrough book that sparks the imagination and inspires us to think about the political economy our country deserves." --Rose Ann Demoro, executive director, California Nurses Association "Clever, fanciful, thought-provoking." --New York Times "Ralph Nader, the consumer activist and corporate scourge, is saying nice things about the kind of folks you'd expect him to despise ... worthy of a billionaire's portfolio." --Hillel Italie, Associated Press "With his new book, Ralph Nader--always the iconoclast and visionary--has created a new genre. ... How many leftist books leave you feeling hopeful, even optimistic? How many offer you a picture of a new world that inspires you to act? ... A genuine creative leap in genre and substance." --Tikkun Magazine Review
