Legendary activist and humanitarian Nader looks back to the earliest days of his own life in Connecticut. From listening to learning, from patriotism to argument, Nader revisits 17 key traditions he absorbed from his parents, his siblings, and the people in his community.
Ralph Nader was recently named by the Atlantic as one of the 100 most influential figures in American history, one of only four living people to be so honored. The son of immigrants from Lebanon, he has launched two major presidential campaigns and founded or organized more than one hundred civic organizations. His groups have made an impact on tax reform, atomic power regulation, the tobacco industry, clean air and water, food safety, access to health care, civil rights, congressional ethics, and much more.
“The Seventeen Traditions brings us back to what’s important in life — and what makes America truly great.”
-Jim Hightower, Illinois Times
