The Rise of the American Corporate Security State

(Book cover courtesy of Berrett-Koehler Publishers).

The Corporate Security State is increasingly stealing our rights to safety, liberty and fairness, and granting ever-growing power to the corporate elite. Beatrice Edwards discusses this very frightening, very real phenomenon in her new book.

Daniel Ellsberg writes of The Rise of the American Corporate Security State: “Edwards is an extraordinary writer who brilliantly captures the essence of what whistleblowers such as Snowden have sacrificed their careers and jeopardized their personal liberties to convey.” Truthout is serializing the The Rise of the American Corporate State in cooperation with Berrett-Koehler Publishers.
