Captive State by George Monbiot

Captive State: The Corporate Takeover of Britain by George Monbiot George Monbiot uncovers what many have suspected but few have been able to prove: that corporations have become so powerful they now threaten the foundations of democratic government. Many of the stories he recounts have never been told before, and they could scarcely be more embarrassing to a government that claims to act on behalf of all of us. Captive State is a devastating indictment of the corruption to which our political leaders have succumbed. (Quote from www.monbiot.com)
Note: I have not read this book yet, but I have read "Age of Consent" by the same author, and I follow his blog and his Guardian articles almost obsessively, so I feel no qualms about recommending it. And I will probably purchase it to take on my holiday, perhaps to read on one of the 18 hour train trips between Portland Oregon and Berkeley California and back again.
