Civic Empowerment in an Age of Corporate Greed
Winner: 2012 Historical Society of Michigan State History
“As evidenced by the increasing 99% movement, we are living in a new and corporate age of Robber Barron Capitalism. That's why Civic Empowerment In An Age Of Corporate Greed by Edward C. Lorenz (Reid-Knox Professor of History, Professor of Political Science, and Director of the Public Affairs Institute, Alma College, Michigan) offers such an important and timely descriptive and analytical examination of civic engagement with respect to the kind of unethical and even criminal corporate activity that has resulted in the pollution, contamination, and economic disaster on local, regional, and national scales. Using 'real world' examples arising from seven contaminated Superfund sites, food contamination scandals, financial manipulation debacles, and the organized public efforts to compel corporate interests to reform, readers will find Professor Lorenz's Civic Empowerment In An Age Of Corporate Greed" to be informed, informative, a model of seminal research, and an instructive guide for both public and private reform efforts - including an applicable 'blueprint' for communities having to deal with governmental indifference and corporate obfuscation. Thoroughly 'reader friendly' from beginning to end, Civic Empowerment In An Age Of Corporate Greed is highly recommended for community and academic library collections, as well as to the attention of non- specialist general readers with an interest in curbing corporate corruption in our politics, in our environment, and in our economy.” - MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
