Crashing the Party: Taking on the Corporate Government in an Age of Surrender,

Ralph Nader

This one got me riled up. We didn't get to see Nader in the debates. Why was that? Oh, because he didn't have enough support in the polls, according to the Commission on Presidential Debates. And what is the CPD? It's a private, non-profit organization that was created in 1987 by the Republicans and Democrats to elbow the League of Women Voters out of the debate business. (That'll keep those pesky John Anderson-types out of the process.) Nader details this and quite a bit else as he chronicles his run for the presidency in 2000. Excellent read.
