Fox in the Henhouse by Si Kahn

Book Description

Privatization is one of the most important political and economic developments of our time, affecting virtually every person and state in the world. The purpose of "The Fox in the Henhouse is to present, in clear, direct terms, an analysis of privatization that helps readers understand what is happening to them and what they can do about it. It gives people on all sides of many different privatization struggles -- over hospitals, schools, sanitation, water, Social Security, the military, public lands, the postal service, national parks, prisons -- the arguments that have been used to place privatization at the center of the corporate agenda and to dominate the public debate. It also offers a historical framework that allows readers to center their thinking on what it means to build a democratic society, while providing the counterarguments -- and inspiration -- that people need both to argue and to fight back.
