Ralph Nader's book Unsafe at any Speed led to the creation of federal vehicle safety standards in the mid-1960s. It also led to the end of production of the Chevrolet Corvair, which was the primary subject of the book. It led to national fame for Nader, accompanied by death threats, investigations by GM attorneys and detectives and the FBI.
