There's Nothing in the Middle of the Road but Yellow Stripes and Dead ArmadillosBook - 1997
Leaving almost no contemporary issue unscathed, he lays bare the dirty politics behind the new global economy, exposing how these three institutions have undermined basic American values like justice, fairness, tolerance and opportunity; how they've steamrolled the common people, ignoring their needs; how they've created an oppressive and oppressing machine that keeps the downtrodden downtrodden.
Author, radio commentator, public speaker and political sparkplug, Hightower doesn't gripe and whine, he offers commonsense solutions to controversial issues. In language everyone can understand, he tackles big issues and proposes strategies that are easy to implement. Calling on the poor and middleclass, the groups he claims represent a true populist majority, he shows how an already strong grassroots movement can be made even stronger. Arguing for change on the local level, Hightower demonstrates exactly how this can be accomplished.
