Quotes

Highly informative, often shocking and eye-opening! THE CORPORATION presents compelling and original perspectives on the origin,nature, expansion and effects of the modern corporate institution that dominates the economy, polity culture and everyday life of most of the earth's inhabitants, while also depicting individuals and groups struggling against corporate domination.
