About the author (1973)

Ralph Nader, an American activist, was born on February 27, 1934. Nader has challenged corporations, government agencies, and institutions to be more accountable to the public. In 1965, his book "Unsafe at Any Speed" changed the face of the automobile industry and made Ralph Nader a household name. As a result of his efforts, cars have more safety features. His lobbying and writing on the food industry insured that the food we buy is required to pass strict guidelines before reaching the consumer. One of his greatest achievements was the 1974 amendment to the Freedom of Information Act that gave increased public access to government documents. This brought freedom of press to a new level, resulting in increased access for journalists. Nader is a five-time candidate for President of the United States. He has co-founded numerous public interest groups including Public Citizen, Critical Mass, Commercial Alert, and the Center for Study of Responsive Law. He continues to be a relentless force for grassroots activism and democratic change in the United States.
