The rats, rising from the Congressional catacombs, have shown the way. An exciting fable, How the Rats Re-formed the Congress by Ralph Nader shows the specific steps WE THE PEOPLE can take to control Congress, our smallest, yet most powerful, constitutional branch of government.

The rats, too, are single-minded in their pursuit of prey. O'Brien, for example, tells Winston that a baby cannot be left alone in the poor quarter, even for five minutes, because the rats are. Behold the rat, dirty and disgusting. Robert Sullivan turns the lowly rat into the star of the most perversely intriguing, remarkable, and unexpectedly elegant book of the season.
