“Ralph Nader is the grand progressive of our time. We overlook his words at our own peril!” —Cornel West
Consumer protection, environmentalism, and government reform: Since the publication in 1965 of his bestselling critique of the car industry, Unsafe at Any Speed, Ralph Nader, activist, lawyer, and sometime politician has been agitating for causes near and dear to the progressive American agenda for the past 50 years. In the wake of an election season that has illuminated striking divisions within the American populace and prompted immense public reflection on what we believe to be our fundamental rights and freedoms, Nader reflects on his passions and life’s work as an activist now working in Trump’s America.
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 20th century, 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.
