7 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 1,297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In No Contest, Ralph Nader and Wesley J. Smith kick over the rotted log our corporate-dominated legal system has become to reveal what has been happening to individual justice just out of public view. Through extensive research and interviews with juries, litigants, judges, lawyers, and legal scholars, Nader and Smith counter the corporate-financed propaganda blitz that has painted multibillion-dollar corporations as hapless victims of ordinary Americans bent on suing their way into prosperity. They argue that, in fact, our system has all but abandoned the ideal of providing every American access to justice. Instead, many courts have become the nearly exclusive domain of the country's largest and most powerful corporations - and their lawyers. Behind the giant corporations' tightening grip on American society are the large corporate law firms who have perfected the art of nullifying, misusing, or breaking the law, while pretending to uphold it. In No Contest, Nader and Smith reveal a side of corporate law practice rarely discussed in the media or shown on Court TV. The authors put law firms in New York, Washington, D.C., Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Seattle, and around the world under the microscope. They show how the "power lawyers" are behind the erosion of the basic rights of access to true and timely justice for ordinary Americans and people the world over. The scope of the assault on workers' rights to organize, taxpayers and investors' need for sound financial institutions, patients' needs for competent health care, and consumers' needs for product safety is breathtaking. But it can be stopped. No Contest depicts dramatic personal struggles by lawyers of conscience to hold the law to its ideals of justice, and gives voice to the unheralded corporate lawyers who are resisting the corruption of their profession. Nader and Smith propose an extensive program of legal reform that will preserve access to justice for all Americans, unclog the congested courts, and guarantee that the right side - citizen or corporation, poor or rich - will prevail. No Contest is a book for all citizens who believe that justice under law is a big step on the road to reform of the American political process

Unstoppable : the emerging left-right alliance to dismantle the corporate state by Ralph Nader( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ralph Nader has fought for over fifty years on behalf of American citizens against the reckless influence of corporations on our society. At this pivotal political moment, Americans are more disillusioned with their political leaders than ever. Large majorities tell pollsters that big corporations have too much political power. The ever tightening influence of big business on the mainstream media, elections and our local, state and federal governments, have caused many Americans to believe they have no political voice. In Unstoppable, Nader ramps up the fight and makes a hugely persuasive case that American citizens are not powerless. Unstoppable is about the emerging political re-alignment that is combining the Left and the Right against converging corporate-government tyranny. Large segments from the progressive, conservative, and libertarian political camps find themselves aligned in opposition to the destruction of civil liberties, the bloated and economically draining corporate welfare state, the relentless perpetuation of America's wars, sovereignty-shredding free trade agreements, and the unpunished crimes of Wall Street against Main Street. These are all issues that can be traced back to the growing influence of corporate Goliaths and their ability to combine forces with indentured government against the interests of the broader public. Nader draws on half a century of his own experience working with the grassroots and Congress and tells of many surprising victories that have united progressive and conservative forces. As a participator in and keen observer of these budding alliances, he breaks new ground in showing how these coalitions can overcome specific obstacles that divide and rule them and expand their power on Capitol Hill, in the courts, and in the arena of public opinion. Nader provides a blueprint for how Americans on both sides of the aisle can fight against the corporate state and crony capitalism. Nader shows how they can reclaim their right to consume safe foods and drugs, breathe clean air, receive fair rewards for their work, regain control of taxpayer assets, and achieve a more self-reliant economy. Far from espousing 'let's meet half-way' type compromises, Nader argues that it is in the interest of citizens of different political labels to join in the struggle against the corporate state that will, if left unchecked, ruin the Republic, shred our constitution, and stampede over the rights of the American people"--
