No contest : corporate lawyers and the perversion of justice in America by Ralph Nader( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 1,168 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 )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 1,161 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"--

Breaking through power : it's easier than we think by Ralph Nader( )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 931 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Breaking Through Power, Nader draws from a lifetime waging--and often winning--David vs. Goliath battles against big corporations and the United States government. In this succinct, Tom Paine-style wake-up call, the iconic consumer advocate highlights the success stories of fellow Americans who organize change and work together to derail the many ways in which wealth manipulates politics, labor, media, the environment, and the quality of national life today. Nader makes an inspired case about how the nation can--and must--be democratically managed by communities guided by the United States Constitution, not by the dictates of big businesses and the wealthy few. This is classic Ralph Nader, a crystallization of the core political beliefs and commitments that have driven his lifetime of advocacy for greater democracy. "Ralph Nader is the grand progressive of our time. We overlook his words at our own peril! This book is required reading."--Cornel West "Ralph Nader's Breaking Through Power is a brilliant analysis of corporate power and the popular mechanisms that can be used to wrest back our democracy. No one has been fighting corporate domination longer, or understands it better, than Nader, who will go down in history not only as a prophet but an example of what it means to live the moral life. We disregard his wisdom and his courage at our peril."--Chris Hedges, Pulitzer-Prize winner and author of Wages of Rebellion: The Moral Imperative of Revolt "As America's top Citizen Champion, Ralph Nader has dedicated his life to not just speaking, but activating, truth in the fight against power. In Breaking Through Power, Nader exposes the overriding demolition of daily life caused by plutocracy and elite rule, which is particularly poignant during this election year. With conviction and passionate clarity, and underscoring the simple fact that, 'People matter, you matter.' Nader goes beyond delineating the problem and provides a critical prescription to battle the toxicity of unjust power--one that every individual can, and must, embrace."--Nomi Prins, author, All the Presidents' Bankers "People are recognizing that our founding, fundamental values of fairness, justice, and opportunity for all--the very values that define our America--are being shoved aside to create an un-America of plutocracy and autocracy. Ralph Nader's new book Breaking Through Power provides progressive boat-rockers with inspiration and a plan for reclaiming America from the greedy Plutocrats and Fat Cats who think democracy is for sale to the highest bidder."--Jim Hightower "I read Ralph Nader for the same reasons that I read Tom Paine. He knows what he thinks, says what he means, and his courage is a lesson for us all."--Lewis Lapham "Nader insists on speaking up for the little people and backs his arguments and decent sentiments with hard facts."--Publishers Weekly About Ralph Nader: Named by The Atlantic as one of the hundred most influential figures in American history, and by Time and Life magazines as one of the most influential Americans of the twentieth century, Ralph Nader has helped us drive safer cars, eat healthier food, breathe better air, drink cleaner water, and work in safer environments for more than four decades. Nader's recent books include Unstoppable, The Good Fight, and the bestseller, Seventeen Traditions. Nader writes a syndicated column, has his own radio show, and gives lectures and interviews year round"--

Action for a change; a student's manual for public interest organizing by Ralph Nader( Book )

18 editions published between 1971 and 1976 in English and French and held by 893 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this action-oriented manual, Ralph Nader answers the plea of college students: What can we do about pollution and consumer injustice? How can students and other citizens work to get things done in their communities and states? A step by step guide is offered for forming Public Interest Research Groups (pirg) like Nader's in Washington, D.C., and the Nader-inspired PIRG's in Minnesota and Oregon. Attorney Donald Ross shows in detail how to initiate public interest and research groups, how to marshal talent, how to finance the group, and how to put it to work. The pirg approach is advocated to bring about "initiatory democracy," a full-time citizenry, aware, informed, and constantly acting upon social, economic, and political institutions in the public interest.
