Admirers of Nader will find much to savor here as will anyone seeking to understand the mind of a man who singlehandedly sparked a new era of citizen-driven political and consumer activism." --"Publishers Weekly"
The column is the most natural literary form for a citizen's advocate, and Ralph Nader may be its most robust and forceful practitioner. "The Big Book of Ralph Nader Columns "presents a panoramic portrait of the problems confronting our society and provides examples of the many actions an organized citizenry could and should take to create a more just and environmentally sustainable world. Drawing on decades of experience, Nader's columns document the consequences of concentrated corporate power; threats to our food, water and air; the corrosive effect of commercialism on our children; the dismantling of worker rights; and the attacks on our civil rights and civil liberties. Nader also offers concrete suggestions to spark citizen action and achieve social change.

  • Reviewer: Staff

The iconic consumer affairs crusader and former presidential candidate assembles a trove of more than 250 opinion pieces dating from some of his earliest 1970s gigs in the commentariat to musings through 2011. An unrepentant progressive, Nader's devastating critiques of the news media, the financial sector, Supreme Court, among other institutions will warm the hearts of like-minded readers. Several columns scrutinize President Obama for a host of deficiencies including his insistence on seeking a middle ground that does not exist, genuflecting to big business, and his failure to fight for a single payer health care system. Nader is at his polemical best inveighing against specific issues from the skyrocketing costs of college education to the Keystone XL pipeline to new traffic safety concerns that harken back to his pivotal game-changing 1965 book, Unsafe at Any Speed. Admirers of Nader will find much to savor here as will anyone seeking to understand the mind of a man who singlehandedly sparked a new era of citizen-driven political and consumer activism. (June)
