We the People: A Call to Take Back America
by Thom Hartmann
Thom has done the hard work of researching and reading the documents that show how Americans have become second class citizens — overshadowed by the first-class "personhood" of corporations. In often devious fashion, transnational corporations have usurped control from We the People — a development that the Founding Fathers never intended — and we are now at a point where we may lose many more of our precious rights and freedoms. More importantly, he points the way out of the peril — all in brilliant, down-to-earth fashion.
We the People (February 2004) delivers profound substance in an inviting, accessible format. Highly illustrated by the talented Neil Cohn, this book propels readers to complete it, so they can have a clear understanding of both the critical nature of our situation and concrete steps to change course. It has the potential to help shape the national political debate in 2004.
Thom Hartmann has authored over a dozen books — including two bestsellers and five books available in multiple languages on four continents. His books have been written about in Time magazine, he's been on the front page of The Wall Street Journal for the businesses he has started, and he's been a guest on numerous radio and TV shows, including NPR's All Things Considered, CNN and BBC for both his writings and his international relief work. His book The Prophet's Way led to an invitation to a private audience with Pope John Paul II in 1998. His book The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight led to a September, 1999 invitation to spend a week with His Holiness The Dalai Lama at his home in Dharamsala, India. Thom is also the creator of the "Hunter in a Farmer's World" metaphor for describing ADD and ADHD. His most recent book is entitled Unequal Protection: The Rise of Corporate Dominance and Theft of Human Rights.
More recently, Hartmann began a syndicated radio talk show that reaches listeners across America on terrestrial radio stations, the Sirius satellite radio system, and live on the internet.
