The Fox In The Henhouse



Privatization has been on the right-wing agenda for years. Health care, schools, Social Security, public lands, the military, prisons—all are considered fair game. Through stories, analysis, impassioned argument—even song lyrics—Si Kahn and Elizabeth Minnich show that corporations are, by their very nature, unable to fulfill effectively what have traditionally been the responsibilities of government. They make a powerful case that the market is not the measure of all things, and that a vital public sector is an indispensable component of a healthy democracy.

Praise for The Fox In The Henhouse

“Like this excellent and timely book says, these days the foxes aren’t just guarding the henhouse—they’re on the inside. Unless we want to be devoured by the corporate foxes, we chickens better get organized. This book is a great place to start.” —Jim Hightower, author of the New York Times bestseller Thieves in High Places "If you care about your children's education, the quality of the air you breathe and the water you drink, affordable health care or Social Security, you need to read The Fox in the Henhouse…. Kahn and Minnich have given us a blueprint of how to organize now to protect our country and our future." —Jan Schakowsky, U.S. House of Representatives “Few books manage to do what The Fox in the Henhouse does. It provides analytic tools for challenging corporate America's sale of democracy, honors legacies of resistance, and moves us to a vision of hope and action challenging the privatization of our lives and dreams." —Chandra Talpade Mohanty, educator and author of Feminism Without Borders "Inspiring to read, this book will be of great value to organizers, activists, and citizens of conscience...Nothing less than our democracy is at stake when extremists want to roll back our hard-earned rights. It offers a spirited blueprint for all citizens who care about renewing America's best and most generous traditions." —Katrina vanden Heuvel, Editor, The Nation
