World, Incorporated: The History of the Supra-National Corporation and its Global Stranglehold on Freedom and Democracy

Length: 366 pages5 hours

This book is a history of corporations, as they grew from small tightly-controlled public works to huge quasi-governmental behemoths who now have literal veto power over elected national governments.
