InBreaking Through Power, Nader draws from a lifetime wagingand often winningDavid 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 canand mustbe democratically managed by communities guided by the U.S. 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'sBreaking Through Poweris 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 ofWages of Rebellion: The Moral Imperative of Revolt

"People are recognizing that our founding, fundamental values of fairness, justice, and opportunity for allthe very values that define our Americaare being shoved aside to create an un-America of plutocracy and autocracy. Ralph Nader's new bookBreaking Through Powerprovides 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

"As America's top Citizen Champion, Ralph Nader has dedicated his life to not just speaking, but activating, truth in the fight against power. InBreaking 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 powerone that every individual can, and must, embrace."Nomi Prins, author,All the Presidents' Bankers

"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
