The Fox in the Henhouse: How Privatization Threatens Democracyby Si Kahn
Synopses & Reviews

The purpose of ""The Fox in the Henhouse is to present, in clear, direct terms, an analysis of privatization that helps readers understand what is happening to them and what they can do about it.

It also offers a historical framework that allows readers to center their thinking on what it means to build a democratic society, while providing the counterarguments — and inspiration — that people need both to argue and to fight back.
