A landmark exposé and “deeply engaging legal history” of one of the most successful, yet least known, civil rights movements in American history (Washington Post). In a revelatory work praised as “excellent and timely” (New York Times Book Review, front page), Adam Winkler, author of Gunfight, once again makes sense of our fraught constitutional history in this incisive portrait of how American businesses seized political power, won “equal rights,” and transformed the Constitution to serve big business. Uncovering the deep roots of Citizens United, he repositions that controversial 2010 Supreme Court decision as the capstone of a centuries-old battle for corporate personhood. “Tackling a topic that ought to be at the heart of political debate” (Economist), Winkler surveys more than four hundred years of diverse cases—and the contributions of such legendary legal figures as Daniel Webster, Roger Taney, Lewis Powell, and even Thurgood Marshall—to reveal that “the history of corporate rights is replete with ironies” (Wall Street Journal). We the Corporations is an uncompromising work of history to be read for years to come.

One of the unspoken assumptions of the Western world is that we are great defenders of human rights, a free press and the benefits of market economics. Mistakes might be made along the way, perhaps even tragic errors of judgement such as the 2003 invasion of Iraq. But the prevailing view is that the West is essentially a force for good in the wider world. Why Are We The Good Guys? is a provocative challenge of this false ideology. David Cromwell digs beneath standard accounts of crucial issues such as foreign policy, climate change and the constant struggle between state-corporate power and genuine democracy. The powerful evidence-based analysis of current affairs is leavened by some of the formative experiences that led the author to question the basic myth of Western benevolence: from schoolroom experiments in democracy, exposure to radical ideas at home, and a mercy mission while at sea; to an unexpected encounter with former Foreign Secretary Robin Cook, the struggles to publish hard-hitting journalism, and the founding of Media Lens in 2001.

Political correctness appears innocuous enough until one truly looks at the ripple effect created by today's manipulative players looking for an advantage. Political correctness is a lie because saying it isn't so, doesn't change the facts...the facts are that pigs don't fly and life "ain't" fair! This charade has become so ingrained in our culture today that no one is willing to call it what it is; a facade for a culture of entitlement based on denial and rejection of responsibility. While political correctness has been solidifying its place in our lives for some time now, it has recently been joined by its natural adjunct partner...socialism. Our current administration has decided it knows what's best for us in spite of a majority of voters expressing an opposing opinion. But my real fear is that his agenda and ambitions are going to destroy America... Obama is not the first president with a large streak of narcissism. But the others had equally expansive feelings about their country. He epitomizes today's "me" culture with their "it's not my fault" mentality supported by their entitlement attitude. He is the embodiment of everything that is "wrong" with America today...he is the maestro of the blame-game (mistakes will be made, but others can be blamed). We have misplaced our traditional values while buying into the liberal's progressive mindset. Our losses have been mounting for decades and the accumulative consequences are coming to bear. The list is endless: common sense, common courtesies, responsibility, accountability, integrity, family values, love of country...and God. I'm not suggesting he caused this decline in America's moral values; but I would suggest his radical vision for America...and beyond, is to take what we see today to the next level. From his distorted perspective he is myopically focused on shepherding us to what's "right" for America.

In WE THE PEOPLE, A DOCTORS HANDBOOK ., Michael P Fangman M.D. gives the United States anything but a clean bill of health. In a far reaching commentary youll never hear on Meet the Press; medical problem-solving and common sense are compared to political patrimony in the face of dire systemic problems. The paralysis of Washington DC is exposed for what it is - Machiavellian greed and irresponsibility; flagrant denial that their broken partisan political system is threatening to kill our American way of life. He explains how leadership and accountability have been replaced in Washington DC by extremism and myopic ideology; insinuated with crony capitalism and seeking domination through polarized elections and money. We the People- who rely on DC to maintain a society where hard work should afford us our constitutions most basic goal, promotion of the The General Welfare, are increasingly irrelevant. The arrogance of todays leadership is unprecedented and must end. But his message is one of confidence that the wisdom, productivity, ethical standards and vitality of the American people can be harnessed and must prevail over partisan political corruption and crony capitalism. In the end, the Handbook shows the reader how WE THE PEOPLE can empower ourselves with knowledge and unity, to exercise our Constitutional rights and reshape our own future as a team.

Currently, there exists a distrust of corporate activity in the continuing aftermath of the financial crisis and with increasing recognition of the threats of climate change and global, as well as national, inequalities. Despite efforts in the arena of corporate governance to address these, we are still beset with corporate scandals and witness companies facing large fines for their environmental and cost-cutting misdemeanours. Recognising that the usual responses to dealing with these corporate problems are not effective, this book asks whether the traditional form of the joint stock corporation itself lies at the heart of these problems. What are the features of the corporate form and how does its current regulation underscore these problems? Identifying such features provides a basis for the discussion to develop towards suggesting more progressive regulatory developments around the corporate form. More fundamentally, this book investigates a diverse range of corporate governance models that are emerging as alternatives to the shareholder corporation, including employee-owned, cooperative and social enterprises. The contributors are leading scholars from various backgrounds including law, management and organisation studies, finance and accounting, as well as experienced professionals and policy makers with expertise in social and cooperative business models and the role of employees in the corporation.
