Book News Annotation:

With this portable pocket directory (4x8.5"), activists, conscientious consumers, and other general readers will be able to see at a glance the political contributions and business practices of about 1,000 companies. Companies are organized alphabetically into 13 product and service sectors. Each section begins with an overview (new to this edition), and a list of top ten Democratic and Republican party contributors in the sector. Entries give dollar amounts spent by the company on political party contributions and lobbying, as well as notes on employee benefits and labor practices, the company's human rights record, lawsuits, and support for causes. Each entry includes a simple visual chart showing where the company falls on the donkey-to-elephant continuum. This second edition features expanded listings, updated data from the 2008 election cycle, and more information on environmental policies. This edition also adds the expertise of the Center for Responsive Politics (CRP). Crouse is a political campaign consultant and researcher.
