    From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
    "Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
    David C. Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World and Agenda for A New Economy
    From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
    "With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
    Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
    From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
    "Beneath the success and rise of American enterprise is an untold history that is antithetical to every value Americans hold dear. This is a seminal work, a godsend really, a clear message to every citizen about the need to reform our country, laws, and companies."
    Paul Hawken, coauthor of Natural Capitalism and author of The Ecology of Commerce
