17 August 1999

Nicky Hager and Bob Burton's "Secrets and Lies: the anatomy of an anti-environmental PR campaign" hit the news in grand style today.

It is an amazing exposure of the government, the PR industry, Timberlands, etc. A great book on how Timberlands systematically attacked critics, arranged the creation of an 'independent' pro-logging community group, cultivated allies in academia, industry, parliament and environmental groups, compromised the independence of public servants and journalists and much more - all in the unworthy cause of keeping native logging going after most New Zealanders believed it should end.

Based on hard evidence, revealed in hundreds of pages of internal PR documents leadked by insiders offended at what they saw happening. These reveal, in extraordinary detail, a multi-million dollar anti-environmental campaign.
