"The Space Merchants" was written jointly by Frederik Pohl and C.M.Kornbluth. It is a gripping, thrilling read, describing a world dominated by giant advertising corporations where all of human life has been comodified, and the planet and natural world lie practically in ruins. A small but committed group of people - the "Consies" (or Conservationists) are trying to salvage humanity .... Although written many decades ago this book still has a powerful message and relevance for modern times. Surely it is one of the all time great SciFi novels.
