Global Spin: The Corporate Assault on Environmentalism, Sharon Beder

Global Spin by Sharon Beder examines the systematic stifling of independent critical thought by multinational corporations - in alliance with the media and government. Beder's analysis is comprehensive, steely and clinical. She lifts the lid on an elaborate tapestry of lies, deceit, intimidation and destruction. Mind you, the multinationals do possess some strong arguments. For instance, they contend that to destroy the environment is actually in the best interests of the environment. In other words, they're saving the environment from itself. If you follow.
