“What sets Ralph Nader apart is that he has moved beyond social criticism to effective political action.” —The New York Times 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.

Über die facettenreiche Arbeit der 71-jährigen Künstlerin Patti Smith gibt es eine Flut von Informationen - nicht zuletzt durch das Internet. Auch ihre autobiografischen Werke Just Kids und M Train haben eine internationale Leserschaft gefunden. Henning E. Kuckuk setzt sich ausgehend von der interdisziplinären Amerikanistik und den Cultural Studies - mit Bezug auf politik- und sozialwissenschaftliche Parameter - erstmals wissenschaftlich mit ihrem Werk und Leben auseinander. Der Analyse liegen empirische Untersuchungen von Performances und der Website der Künstlerin zugrunde, die von einem breiten Publikum rezipiert werden. Wie Patti Smith spricht auch dieses Buch eine politisch aktive Öffentlichkeit an.

The Nature of Liberty trilogy presents an ethical case for individual liberty, arguing from the philosophy of Ayn Rand and citing the findings of evolutionary psychology to demonstrate the compatibility between human nature and laissez-faire liberty. The first installment, The Freedom of Peaceful Action, makes the philosophic case that an approach starting from observational reason will indicate the practicality and ethical desirability of a free-market system based on rights.

"Nader’s assessment of how concentrated wealth and power undermine democracy is clear and compelling, but it’s his substantive vision of how we ought to respond that makes Breaking Through Power essential reading. Written just before Donald Trump’s Electoral College victory, Nader’s latest book reads with even greater urgency now."--Yes Magazine In Breaking Through Power, Ralph 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 "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 Animal Envy, 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.

Ralph Nader has fought for over fifty years on behalf of American citizens against the reckless influence of corporations and their government patrons on our society. Now he ramps up the fight and makes a persuasive case that Americans are not powerless. In Unstoppable, he explores the emerging political alignment of 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 economically draining corporate welfare state, the relentless perpetuation of America's wars, sovereignty-shredding trade agreements, and the unpunished crimes of Wall Street against Main Street. Nader shows how Left-Right coalitions can prevail over the corporate state and crony capitalism. He draws on his extensive experience working with grassroots organizations in Washington and reveals the many surprising victories by united progressive and conservative forces. As a participator in, and keen observer of, these budding alliances, he breaks new ground in showing how such coalitions can overcome specific obstacles that divide them, and how they can expand their power on Capitol Hill, in the courts, and in the decisive arena of public opinion. Americans can reclaim their right to consume safe foods and drugs, live in healthy environments, receive fair rewards for their work, resist empire, regain control of taxpayer assets, strengthen investor rights, and make bureaucrats more efficient and accountable. Nader argues 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, override our constitution, and shred the basic rights of the American people.

Nach DIE SÄULEN DER ERDE und DIE TORE DER WELT der neue große historische KINGSBRIDGE-Roman des internationalen Bestsellerautors: 1558. Noch immer wacht die altehrwürdige Kathedrale von Kingsbridge über die Stadt. Doch die ist im Widerstreit zwischen Katholiken und Protestanten zutiefst gespalten. Freundschaft, Loyalität, Liebe ... nichts scheint mehr von Bedeutung zu sein. Die wahren Feinde sind dabei nicht die rivalisierenden Konfessionen. Der eigentliche Kampf wird zwischen denen ausgefochten, die an Toleranz und Verständigung glauben, und den Tyrannen, die ihre Ideen den anderen aufzwingen wollen - koste es, was es wolle. Ned Willard wünscht sich nichts sehnlicher, als Margery Fitzgerald zu heiraten. Doch der Konflikt entzweit auch sie, und Ned verlässt Kingsbridge, um für die protestantische Prinzessin Elizabeth Tudor zu arbeiten. Als diese wenig später Königin wird, wendet sich ganz Europa gegen England. Um in dieser heiklen Situation früh vor Mordkomplotten, Aufständen und Angriffen der konkurrierenden Mächte gewarnt zu sein, baut die scharfsinnige Monarchin mit Neds Hilfe den ersten Geheimdienst des Landes auf. Die kleine Gruppe geschickter Spione und mutiger Geheimagenten ermöglicht es Elizabeth I. in den nächsten fünfzig Jahren, an ihrem Thron und ihren Prinzipien festzuhalten. Die Liebe zwischen Ned und Margery scheint verloren zu sein, denn von Edinburgh bis Genf steht ganz Europa in Flammen ...
