Summary:
Five years in the preparation, Taming the Giant Corporation is the culminating product of Ralph Nader's examination of governmental and business irresponsibility. It explains in readable detail not only how our megacorporations abuse their power, but also what we -- our government, our citizens -- can do about it. Nader, Green, and Seligman argue that we need to rethink and redesign corporate law.
