Summary
  • "Bakan offers passionate argument and copious research in this compelling call for parents to stand up for their children."--Booklist (starred review)
  • "Corporations have found a new resource to be mined for profit: our children. In this shocking and indelible behind-the-scenes journey, Joel Bakan, acclaimed author and award-winning maker of the renowned film and international bestselling book The Corporation, uncovers the astonishing degree to which companies exploit the special vulnerabilities of children, manipulate parents' fears, and operate with callous disregard for children's health and well-being"--Jacket
