Crashing the Party: How to Tell the Truth and Still Run for President Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ralph Nader is one of America's most passionate and effective social critics. He has been called a muckraker, a consumer crusader, and America's public defender. The cars we drive, the food we eat, the water we drink-their safety has been enhanced largely due to Ralph Nader. His inspiration and example have rallied consumer advocates, citizen activists, public interest lawyers, and government officials into action, and in the 2000 election, nearly three million people voted for him.

An inspiring and defiant memoir, Crashing the Party takes us inside Nader's campaign and explains what it took to fight the two-party juggernaut; why Bush and Gore were really afraid to let him in on their debates; why progressive Democrats have been left behind and ignored by their party; how Democrat and Republican interests have been lost to corporate bankrolling; and what needs to happen in the future for people to take back their political system.

Review:

"The story of Nader's 2000 presidential bid, told with his trademark wooden verve and his equally trademark clarity and passion for the civic good." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"What made Ralphie run: billed as an unrepentant memoir." Library Journal

Synopsis:

In his scathing, honest account of the 2000 presidential race, Nader takes aim at those who have spoiled American democracy.

Crashing the Party goes deep inside Nader's campaign and reveals:
-- What it takes to run against a two-party juggernaut
-- How old liberal friends turned against him
-- Why the Green Party looks better than ever to progressive Democrats
-- Why Bush and Gore were afraid to let him in on their debates
-- How public interest has been lost to corporate bankrolling.
